The wait is over for a better medical-surgical nursing textbook. Contemporary Medical-Surgical Nursing is an exciting tool that prepares the nurse for the realities and challenges of modern practice. Comprehensive acute care is firmly grounded in supporting evidence, which is laced throughout the chapters, while maintaining readability for easy learning. This resource also provides chapters on wound care, infectious diseases, and emergency disaster care not found elsewhere. In addition, the book highlights relevant topics in the context of clinical care, such as health care trends, health costs and benefits, law and ethics, and cultural considerations. Contemporary Medical-Surgical Nursing helps bridge the gap from nursing student to professional by providing learners with the knowledge and skills that support today?s nursing practice.
