“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!”

Pharmacology for Nurses: A Pathophysiologic Approach (5th Edition)


By (author): Michael Patrick Adams, Norman Holland, Carol Urban

For pharmacology courses in nursing programs

Help students think like nurses and understand how pharmacology relates to patient care
When drugs are learned in isolation from their associated diseases, students have difficulty connecting pharmacotherapy, pathophysiology, and nursing care. Pharmacology for Nurses: A PathophysiologiApproach, Fifth Edition, helps students master pharmacology by tightly linking it to therapeutic goals and patient wellness. Organized by body systems and diseases, it places drugs in context with how they are used therapeutically. Students can then easily locate relevant anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology in the same chapter. Nursing Process Application features clearly relate pharmacology to key nursing processes. Features highlighting complementary therapies, community-oriented and evidence-based practices, and lifespan considerations help students make connections to nursing practice. To give readers a clear picture of the holistic nature of pharmacology, the Fifth Edition reflects current pharmacotherapeutics and advances in understanding disease.

Also available with MyNursingLab®

Nurse Writers of the Great War (Nursing History and Humanities Mup)


By (author): Christine E. Hallett

The First World War was the first ‘total war’. Its industrial weaponry damaged millions of men and drove whole armies underground into dangerously unhealthy trenches. Many were killed. Many more suffered terrible, life-threatening injuries: wound infections such as gas gangrene and tetanus, exposure to extremes of temperature, emotional trauma and systemic disease. In an effort to alleviate this suffering, tens of thousands of women volunteered to serve as nurses. Of these, some were experienced professionals, while others had undergone only minimal training. But regardless of their preparation, they would all gain a unique understanding of the conditions of industrial warfare. Until recently their contributions, both to the saving of lives and to our understanding of warfare, have remained largely hidden from view. By combining biographical research with textual analysis, Nurse writers of the great war opens a window onto their insights into the nature of nursing and the impact of warfare.
