Fundamentals of Nursing. Edition: 3

Not rated yet

Build a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills you need to succeed as a nurse! Designed specifically for today's students, Fundamentals of Nursing, 3rd Edition takes a fresh, conversational approach that is friendlier than typical books on nursing fundamentals. To make understanding easier, the book introduces basic information first and then follows with progressively more nuanced and complex nursing concepts. Practical exercises provide a unique kind of active learning, allowing you to apply concepts to actual patient care. Even care planning is different, as authors Barbara L. Yoost and Lynne R. Crawford are pioneers of conceptual care mapping - a visual, holistic way of making clinical judgments and planning patient care. Essentially, this text offers an easier, fundamentally different way to learn the nursing profession!
