Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Betsy Frank, RN, PhD (Indiana State University School of Nursing)
Description:This nursing fundamentals book begins each chapter with situations that ask students to identify blended skills (cognitive, technical, interpersonal, and ethical/legal skills) needed to solve patient care problems. Three units have end of chapter multiple choice questions. Critical thinking exercises and chapter objectives at the end of all chapters help students to review content. The prior edition was published in 1997.
Purpose:The authors state that this book promotes the art and science of nursing by asking students to focus on the blended skills necessary to serve individual patients and the public in what has become a business, rather than care oriented healthcare system. The organization of this book helps to achieve this important goal.
Audience:This book is written for registered nurse students enrolled in fundamentals of nursing courses. Both ADN and BSN students could use this book, but the depth seems more appropriate for ADN students.
Features:The authors begin this book with a variety of topics central to giving nursing care such as community based care, the nursing process, and promoting health across the lifespan. Unique features include quotes from students regarding their learning about nursing care and quotes from patients about their response to nursing care. Some chapters have text boxes for "Research in Nursing: Making a Difference." All chapters have critical thinking exercises. The authors show how the blended skills are performed in acute and community-based settings. One shortcoming is that somebasic information is out of date. For instance one of the accreditation bodies for nursing education was misnamed and biographical data on a nursing leader did not reflect that this person had died several years before this edition was published. Another shortcoming is that some of the early chapters in the book list NANDA nursing diagnoses before the in depth discussion of nursing process.
Assessment:This is an excellent book for associate degree students, but faculty in baccalaureate programs would want to provide additional information when presenting topics. A rapidly changing healthcare system justifies any new edition of a fundamentals of nursing book and this book is no exception.
A serious new entrant in the nursing textbook field for undergraduate students. It focuses on how nurses can work with clients to promote healthy physiologic and psychosocial responses. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
