Written by the author of the best-selling texts on nursing diagnosis and care plans, Understanding the Nursing Process is the first book to tutor students on the nursing process, concept mapping, and care planning all in one text. It guides students systematically through each step, focusing sharply on fundamental need-to-know concepts and using easy-to-understand case studies and learning activities. To teach care planning, the text presents selected nursing diagnoses and collaborative problems that are appropriate for beginning students and grouped from simple to complex. An Instructor's Resource CD-ROM shows how to use the book in a clinical nursing course.
