The field of medicine and surgery is rapidly advancing, and with it come new expectations for the tasks and responsibilities of medical-surgical nurses. With Ignatavicius, Workman, and Rebar’s Medical-Surgical Nursing: Concepts for Interprofessional Collaborative Care, 9th Edition, you can be sure that you have all you need to flourish and adjust in today’s nursing environment, which is always shifting (ePub). This groundbreaking electronic textbook not only covers all of the essential adult health knowledge, but it also helps strengthen the conceptual thinking, application, and clinical judgment skills that today’s surgical nurses need to have in order to stay one step ahead in providing exceptional patient care, regardless of the setting. You may expect to find, throughout the entirety of the ePub eBook, a straightforward, reader-friendly tone, a comprehensive integration of QSEN competencies, a substantial NCLEX® Exam preparation, and a unique collaborative care approach to adult health nursing. This ninth edition incorporates two emerging and complementary trends: the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice and a more conceptual approach learning and teaching. These are areas that will ground you in how to think like a nurse and how to apply the knowledge you gain from the textbook to clinical practice. The Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice are a set of core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice. There are a great number of medical-surgical nursing textbooks available; however, there is only one that brings together all of the ideas, knowledge, and on-the-job realities in a way that is coherent and makes perfect sense: “Iggy!”
With Nursing Safety Priority boxes, which include Drug Alerts, Critical Rescues, and Action Alerts, cutting-edge QSEN integration places an emphasis on patient safety and evidence-based practice.
