Foundations of Nursing Practice: Leading the Way
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The third edition of this popular introductory text builds on its predecessors' reputation for providing a broad scope of material relevant to the Common Foundation course. The updated version features two new chapters: Ethics in Nursing and Health Informatics; the contents have been reorganized into a theory/practice structure and coverage of cultural and branch issues has been improved throughout. With its clarity, readability and range of interactive features, this text demonstrates fluently how knowledge can be applied to practice.
