Summary

This comprehensive, engagingly written text features a strong focus on nursing care and critical thinking. Unlike other books, nursing strategies are organized around nursing diagnoses, each of which is followed by prioritized interventions and highlighted rationales. The full-color format enhances visual learning of complex concepts and processes.

  • Critical Pathways in select nursing care chapters provide students with time-sequenced guides of anticipated care for clients with selected disorders.
  • Highlighted rationales accompanying the prioritized interventions reinforce students' understanding of how nursing actions are related to the client's physiologic and psychosocial response to illness.
  • Critical Thinking Questions, concluding each case study and research box, challenge students to solve client-care problems and explore practical applications.
  • Applying the Nursing Process discussion presents case studies of clients experiencing major disorders to show how the nursing process and critical thinking skills are used to structure effective client care from admission to discharge.
  • Research Boxes help students understand how nursing research can improve everyday nursing practice.
  • Gerontologic Considerations boxes sensitize students to meet the special care-related needs of the older client.
  • Collaborative Care boxes in selected chapters introduce the team based approach of today's healthcare system and foster effective communication between the nurse and other professionals.
  • Nursing Implications of Pharmacology boxes within each clinical chapter explain how drugs are used to treat specific disorders and outline the implications of drug therapy for the nurse and client.
  • Rehabilitation Nursing boxes, in key chapters, show how the principles of rehabilitation nursing can benefit clients in acute care settings.
  • Full-color art throughout the text enhances visual learning by illustrating such complex concepts as pathophysiologic processes of major disorders.
  • Free Student Tutorial Disk package with each textbook includes over 300 NCLEX-style multiple choice questions complete with rationales for right and wrong answers.
