In addition, Internet Assignments and Written Assignments are placed throughout the chapters to encourage individual critical thinking and further classroom discussion. THE PRACTICE ENVIRONMENT OF NURSING: ISSUES AND TRENDS can be used in the traditional setting or accompany an online classroom. The book's online companion includes links to relevant websites, learning activities, case studies, and practice questions.
