Summary

Developed in conjunction with Taylor's Clinical Nursing Skills, Second Edition and Fundamentals of Nursing: The Art and Science of Nursing Care, Sixth Edition, this interactive CD-ROM will reinforce skills students learn from textbooks, videos, and in the nursing skills lab. The thirteen modules correspond to the contents of Taylor's Clinical Nursing Skills, Second Edition. Each module contains interactive case scenarios and tutorials.

In the case scenarios, students work through skills by answering critical thinking questions that focus on the steps of the skill, communication with the patient, and response to unexpected outcomes. The tutorials review the fundamental concepts associated with each skill.
