Now in its Fourth Edition, Health Assessment in Nursing is a colorful, user-friendly introductory level health assessment text for RN-level students. Targeted to ADN and BSN programs, this text presumes no prior knowledge of health assessment and is part of a suite that includes Lab Manual to Accompany Health Assessment in Nursing, Nurses' Handbook of Health Assessment, and Weber & Kelley's Interactive Nursing Assessment. For this edition, the COLDSPA mnemonic, which guides students through investigation of symptoms, has been revised to show specific applications to content in each chapter. A sample application of COLDSPA is presented at the beginning of each chapter's Nursing History section, and another accompanies each case study. The Frail Elderly chapter has been streamlined, with a stronger focus on the normal variations associated with assessment of elderly clients. Includes DVD-ROM.
