    • NEW content on the Electronic Health Record, charting, and narrative recording provides examples of how to document assessment findings.
    • 150 NEW normal and abnormal examination photos for the nose, mouth, throat, thorax, and pediatric assessment show findings that are unexpected or that require referral for follow-up care, with cultural diversity and developmental variations.

    • UPDATED case studies provide opportunities to apply your knowledge and develop your analytical skills.
    • Checklists for use in RN-to-BSN completion programs provide a refresher for seasoned nurses returning to the classroom.
