This book is intended for the short courses in undergraduate psychiatric nursing. The revision includes updated content, more on NIC/NOC, end-of-life issues and grief, complementary therapies, and a completely revised chapter on community. In addition, the author incorporated references to the technology supplements making the book more interactive. A new full color design and art program, and an expanded supplement package, will make the book more competitive.
