Now there’s a standardized way to teach and evaluate skill performance across your entire nursing curriculum! Introducing Clinical Skills from Elsevier — a brand-new skills education series designed to help students of all learning styles truly master important nursing skills outside of the clinical environment. Whether used in the classroom or at home, each collection in the Clinical Skills series offers a consistent, 360-degree look at dozens of nursing skills to ensure your students have a solid understanding of all the important nursing skills and how to perform them safely and effectively.

Clinical Skills: Essentials Collection covers more than 155 of the most important nursing skills within fundamentals and health assessment.
