THE TEXTBOOK (Two-volume set)
The 4th Edition continues in its groundbreaking, two-volume format that teaches students to “think like a nurse” from the very first day. Perfect for both concept-based and traditional curriculums, it is the only text designed the way nursing fundamentals is actually taught. Volume 1 covers the theoretical knowledge taught in class, and Volume 2 covers the practical knowledge taught in lab.

Using a unique and proven approach across a Learn-Apply-Assess continuum, Davis Advantage engages students and helps them make the connections to key topics. Whether teaching in-person or online, this complete, integrated solution aligns seamlessly with the textbook and equips instructors with actionable analytics to track students’ progress, remediate where needed, and facilitate an active learning environment.

LEARN – Personalized Learning
The foundation of the Davis Advantage platform, Personalized Learning, immerses students in an online learning experience tailored to their needs. Students are assessed on their comprehension of key topics from the text, and then are guided through animated mini-lecture videos and dynamic activities to reinforce learning and bring concepts to life.

APPLY – Clinical Judgment
Clinical Judgment is now included in the Davis Advantage platform to elevate students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning, helping them to build the clinical judgment skills they need to practice safe and effective nursing care and to prepare for the Next Generation NCLEX® with confidence. Progressive case studies featuring real-life, complex clinical situations challenge students to apply knowledge, make informed decisions, and evaluate outcomes.

ASSESS - Quizzing
Quizzing uses NCLEX®-style questions for assessment and remediation. Its adaptive, question-based format provides the additional practice students need to test their knowledge, master course content, and perform well on course and board exams.
