Summary, etc.:
Exploring the full psychiatric nursing curriculum, from theoretical foundations to interventions for commonly encountered disorders, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, 7th Edition provides a practical focus on the skills and concepts students need for successful practice. Throughout the book, students have opportunities to learn specific nursing interventions, build therapeutic communication skills, and apply content within the framework of the nursing process. A study guide built into every chapter reinforces student learning and builds critical reasoning skills. The Seventh Edition is updated with features that aim to support students in their learning of important concepts. This edition incorporates "Concept Mastery Alerts" that use data from the adaptive quizzing software PrepU, to help students identify challenging and confusing concepts. This edition also integrates content from Lippincott Theory to Practice Video Series, helping students apply content and retain it more effectively. In addition, the Seventh Edition is supported by online tools that cultivate deeper understanding and increased competency, and is also available for purchase with PrepU's adaptive quizzing and DocuCare, educational electronic health record software.
