Summary: The fully updated second edition of Foundations of Nursing gives you all the information you need to successfully complete your nursing curriculum. This single volume includes comprehensive, fundamental content in basic nursing, adult health nursing, and maternal and pediatric nursing. Introductory content covers such topics as the health care system, communication, nursing processes, and client teaching. Current topics such as HIPAA, West Nile Virus, SARS, and biote ...show morerrorism are also discussed. The adult health nursing section is written following the Nursing Process format. The clinical chapters have been revised to include Nursing Management sections for each disorder, emphasizing the nurse's role in providing competent client care. Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) and Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) have been identified in each Nursing Care Plan. A Case Study included in each chapter uses critical thinking questions to assist the user through the nursing process and to develop a customized plan of care for the client in the scenario. The maternal and pediatric section covers topics such as prenatal care, complications of pregnancy, birth, postpartum care, and newborn care. Childrearing is covered from birth through 18 years of age.

Product Benefits:

  • All Procedures have been redone to follow the detailed nursing process format. Procedures begin with an overview linking the procedure to text content, then list all equipment needed, then walk step-by-step through the nursing process to outline all details of the procedure, including photographs and line drawings as appropriate.
  • Procedures include video/DVD/multimedia links.
  • Nursing Care Plans now include NIC/NOC references, to reflect current practice.
  • Nursing Management sections are now included in all Nursing Process sections (parallel to the current Med-Surgical Management head); this emphasizes the nurse's responsibilities in delivering safe, effective, and competent care.
  • Pharmacology content is highlighted with an icon and a description of the nurse's role.
  • Special boxes emphasize specific information: Life Cycle Considerations, Client Teaching, Infection Control, Safety, Community/Home Health Care, Cultural Considerations, Professional Tip, and Critical Thinking Questions
  • Full Color: Adds realism to the superb illustrations and photos
  • New Collaborative Care boxes reinforce the importance of the nurse as a member of the multidisciplinary health care team.
