Exploring the full psychiatric nursing curriculum, from theoretical foundations to interventions for commonly encountered disorders, Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing” 6th Edition provides a practical focus on the skills and concepts students need for successful practice. Throughout the book, students have opportunities to practice specific nursing interventions, build therapeutic communication skills, and apply content within the framework of the nursing process. A study guide built into every chapter reinforces student learning and builds critical reasoning skills. The Sixth Edition is enhanced by new Best Practice boxes, new chapters, updated content, an increased focus on cultural considerations, a new design, and a new Psych Nursing Online Video Series that shows realistic patient scenarios and asks students to make decisions and answer questions about the video clip. In addition, the Sixth Edition is supported by online tools that cultivate deeper understanding and increased competency, including PrepU’s adaptive quizzing and DocuCare, educational electronic health record software.
