Textbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing: Practical Application of Nursing Process at the Bedside


By (author): Anne M. Van Leeuwen MA BS MT (ASCP), Mickey L. Bladh RN BSN MSN

Make the connections between laboratory and diagnostic testing and the clinical care of your patients!

The team that brings you the popular Davis’s Comprehensive Handbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests With Nursing Implications now brings you the only text thatexplains the who, what, when, how, and why of laboratory and diagnostic testing and connects them to clinical presentations, nursing interventions, and nursing outcomes. Using both printed and interactive case studies, you’ll see exactly how those connections work in the real-world of clinical practice.

Click here for a sneak preview of the text!

 

“As a nursing instructor, the Textbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing: Practical Application of Nursing Process at the Bedside is one book that I would highly recommend be a required textbook for any nursing student. I appreciate that the textbook is distinctly formatted to present diagnostic and laboratory studies while also including case studies. The textbook walks students through understanding why a study is being performed, how it is done, and explains the clinical significance in relation to a given patient situation all while using the nursing process. Absolutely love it!”
