More About This Textbook


Prentice Hall's Real Nursing Skills series continues to offer nurses the complete foundation for competency in performing clinical nursing skills. The volumes in this series consist of interactive DVD-ROMs with comprehensive procedures and rationales demonstrated in hundreds of realistic video clips, animations, illustrations, and photographs. For each skill, students will review: Purpose
• Equipment
• Preparation
• Procedure
• Post-Procedure
• Expected Outcomes
• Documentation
• and Variation (if applicable). This is the only skills series designed to help students visualize how to perform clinical nursing skills and understanding the concepts and rationales for each skill. Throughout the videos, viewers will experience the real-life aspects of: therapeutic communication between the nurse and the client, the client's reaction to invasive skills, and cultural, gender, and age diversity among nurses and clients. Skills sets include pediatric assessment, positioning & restraint, nasogastric and orogatric tube interventions, and more!
