Summary

For Fundamentals of Nursing, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, Psychosocial Nursing and Nursing Specialty LPN/LVN courses.

Part of the LPN/LVN specific series, this practical guide to applying the nursing process to the care of clients with psychiatric disorders and general clients with psychosocial issues teaches psychiatric-mental health nursing as it is really practiced by practical vocational nurses. Students are encouraged to develop empathy for clients and critical thinking skills to meet the challenges of client care. Case studies, client examples and statements from clients in their own words help students understand psychiatric and psychosocial nursing practice. The book is written with the knowledge that not all LPN/LVN nursing students have the opportunity to have psychiatric nursing clinical experiences. All nurses will work with clients who have mental disorders or psychosocial needs.
