Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Elsevier Australia is proud to announce publication of the fourth ANZ edition of Potter and Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing by Jackie Crisp, Catherine Taylor, Clint Douglas and Geraldine Rebeiro.
The dynamic fourth edition of 'Potter and Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing' presents an engaging approach to the fundamentals of nursing while building on its renowned reputation as the foremost text for nursing students across Australia and New Zealand.
The new editorial team presents a critical thinking approach, to encourage the critical skills and understandings students require to maintain a high level of active engagement in the development of their practice within the health care systems they will work throughout their careers.
Meaningful clinical examples combined with critical thinking questions, promote reflection and support deeper learning. These examples underscore how putting quality nursing knowledge and skills into practice can mean the difference between patient recovery and independence versus life threatening complications and patient decline.
Current research examples encourage students to see the dynamic nature of evidence for nursing practice and gain understanding that ongoing change in practice is the norm and should be embraced.
'Potter and Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing', 4th ANZ edition is supported by the 'Fundamentals of Nursing: clinical skills workbook' 2nd edition. The skills in this indispensable workbook are directly aligned to the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse for Australia and New Zealand and support the theory and practice of each skill.
A mobile study app for android and iOS called ClinicalCases will also be available via Google play and the Apple App store for purchase. The ClinicalCases app takes an engaging approach to learning and revision. Students will find it the perfect exam preparation and study tool. It consists of 24 progressive case studies with MCQs and explanations for all answers. It also features over 150 Flash card key terms and a Word game. A great way to learn at your own pace, whenever, wherever…
Elsevier’s Evolve platform also offers a wealth of online resources for nursing students and lecturers, including an impressive suite of Australian nursing clinical skills videos to be used in conjunction with the text and workbook. These videos are ideal for viewing in class or during independent study and are a valuable tool for revision prior to assessment.
