Summary

This groundbreaking workbook/CD-ROM package brings learning to life in a ''virtual'' hospital setting. Each lesson has a textbook reading assignment with corresponding CD-ROM and workbook activities. The workbook acts as a map, guiding students through the CD-ROM as they care for patients in the virtual hospital, and helping them make connections between what they experience through the CD-ROM and what they've learned in their textbook. Each virtual hospital visit allows the student to access realistic information essential to patient care. The result is a true-to-life, hands-on learning experience.

Key Features

The learning environment:

  • Offers multiple information sources that can be examined and evaluated to understand how and why care is implemented.
  • Has meaningful real-world problems that place the student in nursing scenarios where they can set priorities for care, collect data, analyze and interpret data, and reach conclusions about complex problems.
  • The workbook includes lessons that complement the content in the textbook and guide the student through the multi-floor virtual hospital.
  • The multi-floor virtual hospital includes a Surgery Department, Intensive Care Unit, and Medical-Surgical/Telemetry Floor.
  • Content is included on patient care, patient records, case conference, and clinical review to engage the user in the subject matter and allow for further exploration.
  • The CD-ROM offers users the opportunity to visit each patient and access realistic information essential for patient care, including charts, medication administration records, electronic patient records, video streaming of dialogue with nurses, and other related patient materials.

New to this Edition

  • A clock icon appears under each lesson, estimating how much time it will take to complete.
  • A linkage icon alerts the user whenever they are about to begin an exercise that connects with previous lessons.
  • TOC/Index matches chapters from the textbook with patients and lessons in the workbook.
