Fundamentals of Nursing
Fundamentals of nursing are the courses that teach the basic principles and procedures of nursing, addressing the key concepts of contemporary professional nursing, including caring, health promotion, clinical reasoning, nursing informatics, evidence-based practice, ethics, and advocacy. Every chapter reflects the latest nursing evidence, standards, and competencies, as well as the increasing emphasis on aging, wellness, safety, inter-professional practice, and home- and community-based care.
It is designed to guide assessment, involvement, and evaluation of nursing care. The theories also supply a rationale for collecting reliable and valid data about the health status of patients.
