What is included with this book?


This comprehensive set of nursing skills and procedures can be used across the nursing curriculum. It also serves as a good procedure manual for hospitals and medical clinics.

The most complete, up-to-date, and useful guide to performing  current, evidence-based, clinical nursing skills

Current with both the National Council Test Plan for RN and the NCLEX®, Clinical Nursing Skills: Basic to Advanced Skills teaches more than 550 nursing skills, from basic to complex. For each skill, students learn how to assess clients, formulate nursing diagnoses, perform procedures according to safe and accepted protocols, evaluate outcomes, and document pertinent data. Organized around the nursing process, the text helps readers understand the overall theory and rationales for each skill and technique. Coverage of evidence-based care, cultural/religious considerations, nursing management, and community-based nursing is provided throughout. Extensive case studies, critical-thinking features, NCLEX-style review questions, and new QSEN activities give students practice applying their knowledge and clinical reasoning. Easily adaptable to any conceptual curriculum model, Clinical Nursing Skills is the definitive resource for best practice nursing standards, guidelines, and competencies.
