Abstract:

"Written in a warm and conversational style, this innovative text starts by guiding you towards a basic understanding of the nursing profession and then logically progresses through the nursing process and into the safe and systematic methods of applying care. Each chapter features realistic case studies and critical thinking exercises woven throughout the content to help you continually apply what you've learned to actual patient care. Conceptual care maps further your ability to make clinical judgments and synthesize knowledge as you develop plans of care after analyzing and clustering related patient assessment data. All of this paired with a wealth of student-friendly learning features and clinically-focused content offers up a fundamentally different - and quite effective - way for you to easily master the fundamentals of nursing."--Publisher's website.
