9780136070580: Fundamentals of Canadian Nursing: Concepts, Process, and Practice, Second Canadian Edition (2nd Edition)

Building significantly on its successful first Canadian edition, Fundamentals of Canadian Nursing: Concepts, Process, and Practice, 2Ce, presents the fundamentals of contemporary nursing practice in Canada with added content and an updated pedagogical approach. This edition, prepared by new authors and contributors, demonstrates the most current nursing skills as they are practised throughout the country, with a particular focus on critical thinking, primary health care, the nursing process, and lifespan considerations.


The second Canadian edition of Fundamentals of Canadian Nursing  continues to apply a sound pedagogical approach by incorporating the most recent literature and best-practice guidelines. The authors have reorganized the presentation of clinical skills for increased clarity, and a significant increase in new photos helps to further clarify key concepts. The wide range of pedagogical tools has been enhanced with the addition of “Assess Your Learning” questions, modeled directly on the CRNE (Canadian Registered Nurse Examination), Case Studies, and “Reflect on Primary Health Care” boxes. With a clear and accessible writing style, enhanced pedagogical features, and a focus on practical applications with real-world examples, this text continues to provide an ideal bridge between the classroom and clinical settings.
