The Fifth Edition of High Acuity Nursing delivers essential understanding of complex patients and instructs both students and nurses on how to provide nursing care in varied clinical settings.  Broken down into a series of learner-focused modules, High Acuity Nursing  takes complex information and presents it in smaller, more accessible chunks that promote easier mastery by readers.  As the modules progress in difficulty, this text addresses the multiple-system problems that nurses face when caring for high acuity patients.  With a focus on concepts and principles that can be applied across practice settings and patient populations, High Acuity Nursing, Fifth Edition is a learner-friendly approach that will help nurses and nursing students master the concepts and confidence necessary to succeed in today’s health care settings.
