Summary

Designed to maximize visual learning, this Sixth Edition features a new art program and an integrated, cohesive, student-focused suite of multimedia products. Brand-new icons direct students to free video clips and online activities. New concept maps walk students through the nursing process for selected case-study patients. Unexpected outcomes are now included in skills descriptions. Like previous editions, the text maintains its unique holistic "blended skills" approach to nursing care and focuses on case-based learning and critical thinking. A back-of-book CD-ROM includes video clips and a Spanish-English audio glossary. A companion online course is available free with purchase of the text.
