Need a proven nursing title that can effortlessly guide you through teaching in a concept-based curriculum? Then look no further than Concepts for Nursing Practice, 2nd Edition! Written by conceptual learning expert Jean Giddens, this innovative interactive text is the only one of its kind exclusively focused on explaining broad concepts as a basis for helping students make conceptual connections and helping them use that knowledge to locate, analyze, and apply nursing specifics. Coverage centers on 58 of the most common physiologic, behavioral, and professional nursing concepts — including six all new concepts — that can be used throughout the nursing curriculum. Featured exemplars for each concept are also discussed to help students easily understand the concepts and apply them to the clinical setting. In addition to a more refined and intuitive organization, this new second edition also boasts instructor resources that have been significantly expanded to include separate TEACH lesson plans, presentation guides, and test banks for both RN and LPN/LVN programs. In a nutshell, Concepts for Nursing Practice, 2nd Edition is the key to making your concept-based teaching efforts easier and more effective than ever.

    • Authoritative content written by expert Jean Giddens sets the standard for the rapidly growing concept-based curriculum movement.
