Give your students a solid foundation in nursing — from basic concepts to essential skills! Potter & Perry’s Fundamentals of Nursing, 10th Edition seamlessly integrates exceptional teaching and learning resources in a guided approach that extends all the way through your Fundamentals curriculum. The text’s comprehensive coverage emphasizes critical thinking, clinical reasoning, evidence-based practice, nursing theory, and patient-centered care in all settings.

On Evolve, study tools reinforce understanding for students with different learning styles, and instructor tools help you implement other Elsevier nursing resources and teach more effectively.
