Reflecting the latest practices in the field, Clinical Decision Making: Case Studies in Medical-Surgical Nursing, 2nd Edition bridges the gap between classroom knowledge and clinical application. Emphasizing holistic nursing care, the text helps you sharpen critical thinking skills while gaining hands-on experience applying what you have learned. The more than 40 medical-surgical case histories and related questions are based on real-life client situations. Every case contains an introductory "blueprint" of variables that must be considered while evaluating a particular scenario concerning the client, nursing protocol, and setting of care. Each blueprint and case is different, just as each clinical situation is unique. Simulating the actual decision-making process gives you valuable experience making informed clinical judgments that will help maximize your nursing success.
