Description

Comprehensive Nursing Care is an all-in-one learning resource which thoroughly addresses LPN/LVN practice, roles, and collaborative relationships. It covers the six core LPN/LVN curriculum areas: Fundamentals; Medical-Surgical/Adult Health; Maternal-Newborn; Pediatrics; Mental Health; and Leadership. Throughout, critical thinking situations and real-life client scenarios enable students to demonstrate knowledge, develop higher-level skills, and work well with RNs. Professionalism, a crucial focus of modern LPN/LVN education, is addressed throughout. Fully aligned with the NCLEX-PN® Test Plan, this revised edition contains updated coverage of healthcare delivery systems, cultural issues, safety, pandemics, electronic charting, psychosocial issues, Healthy People 2020, health promotion for older adults, continuous quality improvement, and much more.
