The Eighth Edition of this best-selling comprehensive text features a full-color art program. Also new is a feature called "Stop! Think! Respond!" which encourages rapid recall, and more care plans are added to cover every disorder chapter. Drug tables are packed with information such as category and side effects, and each chapter includes nutritional and gerontologic considerations. Illustrated clinical procedures guide the reader on how to execute important skills while critical thinking exercises challenge the reader to apply the content. Nursing care is covered across the continuum, preparing nurses to practice in many settings: hospitals, long-term care facilities, homes or clinics. Includes an Audio Pronunciation CD-ROM.
