Taking a holistic and case-based approach, this updated Eighth Edition of the best-selling Fundamentals of Nursing: The Art and Science of Person-Centered Nursing Care helps beginning nursing students develop the blended competencies (cognitive, technical, interpersonal, and ethical/legal) they will need to effectively care for patients in both institutional and community-based practice settings. Packed with clinical examples, proven pedagogy, striking illustrations, and online learning tools (including video clips, animations, and interactive learning activities), this acclaimed text distills the fundamentals that nursing students need to know to respond today's healthcare challenges competently, enthusiastically and accountably.
Written in a clear, reader-friendly style, the Eighth Edition reflects today's rapidly evolving healthcare delivery system and features a revised art and photo program, new content, new reflection questions to help students cultivate QSEN competencies, new "Delegations Considerations" in each clinical chapter, an unparalleled teaching and learning package, and much more.
In addition, Fundamentals of Nursing, 8e, is accompanied by an integrated suite of products, each created with the students' experience in mind, and coordinated to provide a cohesive learning experience. The suite includes: Study Guide, Skill Checklists, Taylor's Clinical Nursing Skills, Taylor's Handbook of Nursing Skills, Taylor's Video Guide to Clinical Nursing Skills, PrepU, and, new to this edition, Lippincott CoursePoint, a digital curriculum solution for nursing education that integrates adaptive learning powered by PrepU with access to personalized, perfectly timed remediation built on trusted content. Each product in the suite can be purchased separately or packaged with the main text.
