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.
