Worrying about how you’re going to cover all the fundamental nursing principles and concepts in a limited amount of time? Facing students that are overwhelmed by too much information? Get peace of mind with Potter and Perry’s Essentials for Nursing Practice, 8th Edition. This revitalized text combines all the expert nursing content and student-friendly features of Potter and Perry’s Fundamentals text and streamlines it into a shorter format that’s perfect for busy nursing students — and busy nursing instructors! Formerly Basic Nursing, this essential text contains all the nursing principles, concepts, skills, and focus on critical thinking that educators have come to love about Potter and Perry. The new eighth edition also includes new visuals and interactive learning features, and a new TEACH for Nurses suite of educator resources designed to help you carry out your course without a hitch!

    • Progressive case studies are introduced at the beginning of the chapter and are then used to tie together the care plan, concept map, clinical decision-making exercises, and QSEN scenarios.
    • Safety guidelines for nursing skills sections precede each skills section to help you focus on safe and effective skills performance.
    • Nursing skills at the end of each chapter feature full-bleed coloring on the edge of the page to make them easy to locate.
    • UNIQUE! Clinical Decision-Making exercises coordinate directly with the progressive case study presented in the chapter.
    • Focused Patient Assessment tables include actual questions to help you learn how to effectively phrase questions to patients as well as target physical assessment techniques.
    • Evaluation boxes bring everything together after nursing interventions have been implemented.
    • Patient Teaching boxes help you plan effective teaching by first identifying an outcome, then developing strategies on how to teach, and finally, implementing measures to evaluate learning.
    • Care of the Older Adult boxes highlight key aspects of nursing assessment and care for this growing population.
    • NEW! QSEN scenarios present a clinical situation followed by an open-ended question designed to help you understand and apply these core competencies.
    • NEW! Chapter on professional nursing includes information on QSEN, prioritization, delegation, and professional levels.
    • NEW! Completely revised review questions contain a strong mix of clinical thinking and application-level questions.
    • NEW! Content on the impact of exercise covers its influence on disease reduction, compassion fatigue, lateral violence, cyber bullying, social media implications, caregiver strain, and safe patient handling.
    • NEW! Expanded use of Evidence-Based Practice boxes include a PICO question, summary of the results of a research study, and a description of how the study has affected nursing practice — in every chapter.
    • NEW! Patient-Centered Care boxes address racial and ethnic diversity along with the cultural differences that impact socioeconomic status, values, geography, and religion. These will related to the chapter case studies when possible.
