From the book: “While appropriate for either level, we, as authors, are attentive to shifting practice boundaries and feel that the articulation of a largely nursing base for primary care, rooted in caring and holistic approaches, is critical to disciplinary identity and growth.
This text provides a high-level pathophysiological base, evidence-based diagnostic and management strategies, and a holistic plan of care that is consistent with this level of practice. The student is able to find a large amount of information in one text.
Although we realize that graduate students will always need supplementary texts to provide the currency and depth of information that they require, we nonetheless believe that they (and their faculty!) will appreciate one large, complete text, complemented by an ever-expanding collection of ancillaries for faculty and student use.”
