Fundamentals of Nursing: Human Health and Function gives students the knowledge, tools, and problem-solving skills they need to tackle real-life challenges in today s fast-paced clinical settings. In addition to focusing on basics such as how to promote health, differentiate between normal function and dysfunction, use scientific rationales, and follow the approved nursing process, this practical book goes a step further by providing something just as valuable: an understanding of patient safety, communication, and critical thinking, all of which successful nurses must demonstrate. Highlights of the 8th Edition: A timely new chapter Chapter 4, The Nurse s Role in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety responds to multiple imperatives in today s health care, helping students understand systems that promote exceptional care in a complex environment.

Apply Your Critical Thinking features guide students to explore concepts and situations more deeply. Answers in Appendix B allow students to check their thinking.

The eighth edition of Fundamentals of Human Health and Function continues to focus on providing a framework for acquiring knowledge and putting it to work by teaching students to prioritize information, work in a logical sequence, and process data calmly and efficiently. It strives to teach students how to think about each case in a meaningful, systematic way. This book breathes life into theoretical principles and puts students in the mindset of a successful nurse. The framework approach gives students the tools to tackle real-life challenges in a clinical setting. The Nursing Process is the foundation of this book. By learning to identify normal function, assess risk or dysfunction, envision potential outcomes, plan and provide for interventions and evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment, students will be equipped to stay on track while customizing care for each patient. Chapters open with a case study and include critical thinking questions, Apply Your Knowledge Boxes, and Ethical-Legal Boxes to build students' decision-making abilities and clinical judgment. Collaborating with the Healthcare Team Boxes and Patient Teaching Boxes demonstrate the importance of communication in these clinical scenarios. While all books list critical thinking exercises as a feature, most books like Potter and Kozier include these questions at the end of the chapter. Craven weaves critical thinking into most activities throughout the chapter so students are constantly being challenged to think like a professional nurse.
