Nursing: Concepts of Practice
NURSING: CONCEPTS OF PRACTICE presents a thorough description of the development of the self-care deficit nursing theory and illustrates its relevance to nursing practice with a common sense approach. The text presents the foundations of nursing as a field of knowledge and practice and provides an approach to "knowing and thinking nursing," which forms the basis and organizing framework for nursing actions in all types of practice situations. Thoroughly revised and updated, it contains five new chapters and three revised chapters, expanding upon the importance of nursing practice models and the stages of development within the models.
