The state-of-the-art concept-based, student-centered introduction to nursing: first of three volumes, focused on 21 indispensable biophysical concepts.
Today, nurses must be able to transfer their knowledge to new situations, and stay current with new disorders, treatments, and evidence-based practice. Nursing: A Concept–Based Approach to Learning, Volume I, Second Edition will help them achieve all these goals. Its concept-based approach requires students to participate actively, assume more responsibility for their knowledge, integrate concepts, apply information, and use clinical reasoning. Instead of memorizing thousands of alterations, students gain in-depth knowledge of selected alterations, and learn how to apply that knowledge as new challenges and client presentations come their way. The first of two volumes, this fully-updated Volume I focuses on 21 crucial biophysical concepts: acid-base balance; cellular regulation; comfort; digestion; elimination; fluids/electrolytes; health, wellness, and illness; immunity; infection; inflammation; intracranial regulation; metabolism; mobility; nutrition; oxygenation; perfusion; perioperative care; sensory perception; sexuality; thermoregulation, and tissue integrity. These concepts are illuminated with nearly 100 exemplars covering the entire lifespan.
