Book Description

Dec 5 2008 078179529X 978-0781795296 6

The new Sixth Edition of this award-winning classic prepares its users for delivering expert care in this most challenging nursing specialty. It addresses neuroanatomy, assessment, diagnostic evaluation, and management of the complete range of neurological disorders for which nurses provide patient care, including trauma, stroke, tumors, seizures, headache, aneurysms, infections, degenerative disorders, and peripheral neuropathies.

This edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect standards of care based on evidence-based practice. It now includes case studies, community nursing sections throughout, and increased coverage of normal pressure hydrocephalus, inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and Creutzfeld-Jacob disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love neuroscience-get this book! April 1 2003
Format:Hardcover
The Clinical Practice of Neurological and Neurosurgical Nursing is an excellent overview of the care and management of the neuroscience patient. It's perspective is largely that of neurosurgery/ trauma nursing and is focused predominately on the acute phases of care. This text is arranged topically by disease/ injury process with the introductory chapters oriented towards concerns in neuroscience nursing. The depth and breadth of the material is suitable to meet my needs in the neuro-intensive care unit of the Level I trauma center in which I work. It provides a ready and easy to use reference with solid explantions of disease process, complications, treatment, pharmacology, and nursing considerations. I recommend this text to new nurses in neuroscience at my hospital regularly and I am currently using it to prepare for certification in neuroscience nursing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have updated to the new edition March 13 2006
By Cindy Lou Garrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought the first edition of this book after transfering from a multisystem ICU to a neuro-surgical ICU. I have found it to be a very Nurse friendly book. I have several resources for neuro, some are very complex.Joanne Hickey has put together information on a very cerebral topic that is for Nurses from novice to expert.

Pruchased this product for the use of the CNRN exam, was recommended by my clinical preceptor. So far this book seems to be exactly what I was looking for. I've not made it very far yet. So we will see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Guide for Nurses Who Work With Neuro Patients March 24 2011
By P. Salg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have the previous edition of this book and it was an excellent resource guide for nurses who help care for neurologically impacted patients and their families. I recently decided to purchase this new edition and I am not disappointed. It provides the right balance of neuro anatomy with nursing assessment and current testing procedures. This book is a wonderful foundation for the bedside nurse and hopefully will aid us as we educate the patient/family/friends through the acute phase of their disease or injury and beyond. I highly recommend this book.
