Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Undergraduate nursing in physical and health assessment, the text begins with introductory concepts, such as overall health assessment, conducting a health interview and health history, as well as documentation. The second half is organized by body systems, and each chapter reviews anatomy and physiology, teaches students how to conduct an interview, and walks students through the examination for that body system. With our three step approach, we will help students prepare for success. * Learn the techniques* Demonstrate your skills* Practice and test yourself This is a program that combines the text and media in order to create an integrated teaching and learning system. Media is a driving force in this course, possibly more than any other nursing course. With our program, the difference is, the media is chapter specific.

Review:

Health & Physical Assessment in Nursing offers you the tools to learn the art and skills of health assessment and physical examination.  With their hands-on mentoring style, true integration of text and media-based resources, and over a thousand colorful step-by-step photos, the authors help you develop your interviewing and assessment skills while you achieve their educational and professional goals.

 

Using this textbook, here are the three steps you can take to succeed in this course:

 

1. Learn the techniques.

Read the Overview and Anatomy and Physiology Review in each body system chapter.  Learn and practice your interviewing techniques, follow the Physical Assessment process, and survey the Abnormal Findings.  The guide inside the front cover of your textbook will help you navigate through the sections of the chapters.

 

2. Demonstrate your skills.

Screen Grab from CD video or animation

Read the Clinical Interaction interview, and then follow the story to the Companion Website to apply what you learned.  Read the case study at the end of each chapter, and complete all the exercises and activities on the Companion Website.  At www.prenhall.com/damico you can apply what you learned, develop a teaching plan, practice for the NCLEX-RN® exam—and much more.

 

3. Practice and test yourself.

Test what you learned through a variety of activities and exercises tailored to your style of learning.  You can experience animations, tutorials, review questions, real-life cases, and practice NCLEX-RN® questions.  To access these rich resources, use the Student CD-ROM and the Companion Website at www.prenhall.com/damico.
