Book Description

Feb. 20 2009 0136070582 978-0136070580 2

Building significantly on its successful first Canadian edition, Fundamentals of Canadian Nursing: Concepts, Process, and Practice, 2Ce, presents the fundamentals of contemporary nursing practice in Canada with added content and an updated pedagogical approach. This edition, prepared by new authors and contributors, demonstrates the most current nursing skills as they are practised throughout the country, with a particular focus on critical thinking, primary health care, the nursing process, and lifespan considerations.


The second Canadian edition of Fundamentals of Canadian Nursing  continues to apply a sound pedagogical approach by incorporating the most recent literature and best-practice guidelines. The authors have reorganized the presentation of clinical skills for increased clarity, and a significant increase in new photos helps to further clarify key concepts. The wide range of pedagogical tools has been enhanced with the addition of “Assess Your Learning” questions, modeled directly on the CRNE (Canadian Registered Nurse Examination), Case Studies, and “Reflect on Primary Health Care” boxes. With a clear and accessible writing style, enhanced pedagogical features, and a focus on practical applications with real-world examples, this text continues to provide an ideal bridge between the classroom and clinical settings.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE A STUDENT Oct. 1 2011
If you need this for school buy it from your school! No course code comes with it from amazon to use in the mynursinglab. I learned this the hard way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great product, hidden money trap. Sept. 17 2011
Verified Purchase
Impossible to fault the breadth of coverage of this volume, it is an essential reference throughout any nursing career. There are, however, two hidden problems which may make purcasing from Amazon a very unattractive prospect; one, the MyNursingLabs access code, which provides student access to numerous videos, concept tests and more, is NOT included in the cover price, whereas it is at most college bookstores. In paying out an extra $48 just for a code, I was quickly disenchanted with the original "saving" of 25$ over the school price. Secondly, UPS left the package on the doorstep in a busy street without bothering to knock- not ideal with a $150 textbook. So, a great product and an abyssmal experience buying it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont buy this book buy the one with the lab kit Oct. 11 2012
Verified Purchase
If you need this book, buy the other one with the lab kit. It has access to online study help and questions. If you buy this one you will not get it. And I have learned my lesson. You want the one with the online learning to see how well your doing.
