For courses in Fundamentals of Nursing, and Nursing Concepts.

This innovative text uses concrete examples and hands-on exercises to help students clearly understand and apply the five steps of the nursing process to today's rapidly changing healthcare environment. Moving beyond step-by-step instructions, the book encourages students to think about each step of the nursing process and use critical thinking to make better clinical decisions. Balancing practical and conceptual aspects of the nursing process, this edition includes an expanded interactive format, new information on home care/long-term care and the MyNursingKit website to help students begin to think like a nurse.
