Revised to emphasize critical thinking, this Fifth Edition is the most engaging, student-friendly, and comprehensive fundamentals textbook for beginning nursing students. The unique, holistic "blended skills" approach to nursing care integrates technical, cognitive, ethical/legal, and interpersonal skills. Each Fifth Edition chapter opens with three real-world cases, which are used throughout the chapter as examples. Reflective Practice boxes written by Carol Taylor's students describe realistic situations and ask challenging questions. The updated coverage includes discussions of evidence-based practice and a new chapter on complementary and alternative modalities. A back-of-book CD-ROM has tutorials on NCLEX innovative items, and fluid and electrolyte balance. Now this text is available in a package with a student-version DVD of Taylor's Video Guide to Clinical Nursing Skills. Hosted by a nurse expert, this 17-module video program offers engaging reality-based footage, interviews with patients, caregivers, and nurses, and detailed step-by-step demonstration of skills. A unique feature of this video program is its coverage of unexpected situations, with a focus on how to appropriately respond when a skill deviates from the normal steps.
