For the nursing student. The previous edition of this title focused heavily on theory and research; this edition will enhance that material with a greater emphasis on clinical practice using theory and research as the evidence that supports the clinical content. This approach is more in-line with how nursing is taught today. Another key change will be in the organization of clinical content, presenting it according to the trajectory of illness. It will begin with health promotion and finish with end-of-life, incorporating caring for the family along this continuum in a variety of specialties.
