The state-of-the-art three-volume, concept-based, student-centered introduction to nursing focuses on 51 indispensable biophysical professional and healthcare concepts; and more than 435 nursing skills.
Today, nurses must be able to transfer their knowledge to new situations, and stay current with new disorders, treatments, and evidence-based practice. Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, Volumes I-III, Second Edition with MyNursingLab for Concepts will help them achieve all these goals. Its concept-based approach requires students to participate actively, assume more responsibility for their knowledge, integrate concepts, apply information, and use clinical reasoning. Instead of memorizing thousands of alterations, students gain in-depth knowledge of selected alterations, and learn how to apply that knowledge as new challenges and client presentations come their way.
VOLUME I: The first of three volumes, the fully-updated Volume I focuses on 21 crucial biophysical concepts: acid-base balance; cellular regulation; comfort; digestion; elimination; fluids/electrolytes; health, wellness, and illness; immunity; infection; inflammation; intracranial regulation; metabolism; mobility; nutrition; oxygenation; perfusion; perioperative care; sensory perception; sexuality; thermoregulation, and tissue integrity. These concepts are illuminated with nearly 100 exemplars covering the entire lifespan.
VOLUME II: The second of two volumes, the fully-updated Volume II focuses on 30 crucial concepts every nurse needs to master. It begins with several Psychosocial Modules covering addiction, cognition, culture/diversity, development, family, grief/loss, mood/affect, self, spirituality, stress/coping, and violence. After focusing on reproduction, it turns to the nursing domain, covering assessment, caring interventions, clinical decision making, collaboration, communication, care management, professional behaviors, and client teaching/learning. Finally, it turns to the nurse's broader roles, focusing on accountability, advocacy, evidence-based practice, healthcare systems, health policy, informatics, legal issues, quality improvement, and safety. The 30 concepts included in Volume II are illuminated with more than 80 exemplars covering the entire lifespan.
CONSISTENT PEDAGOGY FOR IMPROVED KNOWLEDGE RETENTION: Volume I and II in the textbook series have an updated concept-level template that presents each concept and exemplar in the same manner:
Each CONCEPT follows the following template:
Normal Presentation - Developmental Considerations - Alterations - Related Concepts - Physical Assessment - Diagnostic Tests - Interventions & Therapies
Each EXEMPLAR follows the following template:
Overview - Pathophysiology and Etiology - Clinical Manifestations and Therapies - Nursing Process - Nursing Care Plan - Relate and Reflect
VOLUME III: The only skills book of its kind, Clinical Nursing Skills: A Concept-Based Approach, Volume III, 2nd edition is designed to meet the specific needs and approach of concept-based nursing programs in teaching key nursing skills. Clinical Nursing Skills: A Concept-based Approach presents more than 435 of the most important skills performed by nurses including common variations. This second edition has been revised, restructured, and updated to reflect the most current nursing practices and standards.
Each skill is characterized by an overarching concept and is presented in exceptional step-by-step detail with beautiful, real-life illustrations, which help students visualize exactly how each skill is completed.
