Readability, reliability, and robust resources combine in this outstanding nursing textbook and reference. Designed to prepare nurses for medical-surgical nursing practice and for success on the NCLEX, Brunner & Suddarth's Textbook of Medical-Surgical Nursing, 13th Edition, has been a favorite resource for students, instructors, and practicing nurses for almost a half-century. Its comprehensive yet accessible approach covers a broad range of medical conditions while focusing on the nursing process and the nurse’s role in caring for and educating patients and families within today’s complex health care delivery system. This edition focuses on physiologic, pathophysiologic, and psychosocial concepts as they relate to nursing care and integrates a variety of concepts from other disciplines such as nutrition, pharmacology, and gerontology. Coverage of the health care needs of people with disabilities, nursing research findings, ethical considerations, and evidence-based practice provides opportunities for readers to refine their clinical decision-making skills. Fully updated and enhanced, this new edition provides a fully integrated solution that promotes clinical judgment, performance, and success on the NCLEX examination and in nursing practice.
