FOUNDATIONS OF ADULT HEALTH NURSING 3rd EDITION is a comprehensive user-friendly resource for a medical-surgical nursing course of study. Thoroughly updated throughout, this text follows the Nursing Process format. Clinical chapters include Nursing Management sections for each disorder, emphasizing the nurse's role in providing competent client care. In addition, Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) and Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) have been identified in each Nursing Care Plan. All nursing diagnoses have been updated against the latest NANDA definitions and classifications. An important new chapter on Rehabilitation, Home Health, Long-Term Care and Hospice has been added that defines the nurses role, explains legal issues, and discusses appropriate client assessments and interventions in each healthcare setting. Each chapter contains a Case Study with critical thinking questions designed to assist the reader through the nursing process and to develop a customized plan of care for the client in the scenario. Abundant special features, NCLEX style questions, and the loaded new StudyWARE CD-ROM make this an engaging, student-friendly text.
