This edition retains such popular features as guidelines at the beginning of each chapter, delegation principles for each skill, special considerations for various age groups and care settings, and unexpected outcomes with related nursing interventions. Plus, expanded coverage of cultural and pediatric considerations, new skills, and new features make this edition better than ever!
