Summary "Fundamentals of nursing, 2e highlights the core themes of nursing, including nurse, person, health and environment, covering the fundamental concepts, skills and standards of practice. Research and evidence-based practice issues are highlighted to help introductory nursing students prepare for delivering care for culturally diverse populations across a continuum of settings. With up-to-date coverage of the Registered Nurse Standards of Practice (2016) and key pedagogical features such as our unique 'Spotlight on critical thinking' questions, this text challenges students to assess their own nursing practice and apply the concepts to real-life clinical settings. Fundamentals of nursing presents in-depth material in a clear, concise manner using language that is easy to read and has good coverage of topics such as rural and remote nursing and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. This text is complemented by the bestselling Tollefson, Clinical Psychomotor Skills: Assessment Tools for Nursing, which covers skills and procedures."--Publisher website
