Thinking. Doing. Caring.Leslie S. Treas and Judith Wilkinson, the team that brings you the two-volume approach featured in Fundamentals of Nursing, integrate all of the content and features that are its hallmarks into one carefully designed and written volume that teaches you to “think like nurse” from the very first day.In every chapter, you’ll explore the theoretical knowledge behind the concepts, principles, and rationales; study the practical knowledge involved in the processes; and learn the skills and procedures. Information learning boxes break complex topics into manageable sections, perfect for chapter review now, and exam prep later. Critical-thinking questions challenge you to “think like a nurse” and prepare for professional practice.Care plans and care maps, as well as NANDA, NIC, and NOC, promote effective care planning. A multi-cultural, multi-generational, Asian-American family case study brings nursing theory to life, while additional case studies explain the nurse’s role in today’s complex healthcare system. Illustrated, step-by-step procedures with rationales deliver all the information needed for the skills lab or clinical. You also find descriptions of the research evidence related to the chapter topic and QSEN competancies highlighted in boxes throughout.
