Product Description: The new edition of Fundamentals of Nursing gives you complete coverage of the nursing principles, concepts, and skills that form the foundation of a solid nursing education. This engaging text features streamlined procedures that focus on the essential information you need to know to provide safe and effective care. Each clinical chapter begins with a case study and an overview of key nursing diagnoses, and then assessment, planning, interventions, and evaluation are presented within the context of that case study and those key diagnoses. A new Companion CD provides a variety of activities and review questions to help you master important concepts.

  • Key nursing diagnoses are introduced at the beginning of each clinical chapter and serve as the focus for assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation.
  • Nursing Process Framework for all clinical chapters provides a consistent, logical organization for nursing care.
  • Case studies introduce a patient in each clinical chapter and revisit that patient''s case throughout the chapter, using it as an example in the nursing care plan.
  • Streamlined procedures help you focus on the most essential information for providing safe care - including key steps with rationales, Time to Allow estimates, delegation considerations, equipment needed, safety issues, and home care and age-related considerations as appropriate.

  • Nursing Care Plans boxes, tied to the chapter case study, include NANDA diagnoses, NOC Expected Outcomes with indicators, NIC Interventions with selected activities and critical thinking questions.
  • Comprehensive coverage includes topics not usually covered in other fundamentals texts, such as Vulnerability, The Caregiver Role, The Client with Functional Limitations, and Anxiety.
  • A Patient''s Perspective boxes give you a glimpse into the client''s perception of the experience of illness.
  • Considering the Alternatives boxes provide an overview of alternative and complementary therapies that you might explore with your clients, including advantages and potential risks for each.
  • Action Alerts highlight situations that require immediate nursing action.
  • Clustering Data to Make a Nursing Diagnosis tables present brief patient scenarios and illustrate how to develop appropriate nursing diagnoses.
  • Decision Trees show you how to work through decisions when differentiating between closely related nursing diagnoses.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?

Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
