The book's nursing process framework, critical thinking emphasis, health promotion focus, and thorough coverage of acute and continuing care in all settings help prepare you for nursing practice today.

Procedural Guidelines boxes provide streamlined, step-by-step instructions for performing very basic skills. More than 20 care plans demonstrate the application of the 5-step nursing process to individual patient problems to help you understand how a plan is developed and how to evaluate care. Clients in the care plan extend to the critical thinking activities at the end of each chapter. Over 20 concept maps visually demonstrate planning care for clients with multiple nursing diagnoses.
