The state-of-the-art concept-based, student-centered introduction to nursing: first of two volumes, focused on 30 essential concepts associated with patients' psychosocial and reproductive concerns; with the nurse's professional domain; and with the nurse's roles and responsibilities in the broader healthcare system.
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, Volume II, Second Edition 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. The second of two volumes, this 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 text's 30 concepts are illuminated with over 80 exemplars covering the entire lifespan.
