KOZIER & ERB'S FUNDAMENTALS OF NURSING, 9/e#xA0;thoroughly addresses the key concepts of contemporary professional nursing, helping nurses grow and evolve to meet the demands of a dramatically changing health care system. The Ninth Edition#x19;s content has been systematically revised to reflect new evidence, and a stronger emphasis on aging, wellness, safety, and home- and community-based care. Its objectives have been updated and mapped to support QSEN Competencies, AACN Essentials, the NCLEX-RN#xAE;2010 test plan, and the 2010 ANA Scope and Standards of Practice. Coverage includes: health promotion, disease prevention, holistic care, multiculturalism, nursing theories, informatics, research, ethics, advocacy, and many other topics.

Perfect March 19, 2011
This textbook is formatted well, easy to read, font is good size, and information is concise & explained clearly. It is a great book that covers a lot of information necessary to build that solid foundation for Nursing. It has a chapter summary and some review questions in the style of the NCLEX that are very helpful when studying for exams. The book was cheaper than any other book store. Thanks to ecampus for saving me money!
