Combining two leading LPN/LVN textbooks into one volume, Foundations and Adult Health Nursing, 9th Edition covers the fundamental skills and medical-surgical content essential to providing quality care for patients across the lifespan, including pediatric, maternity, adult, and older adult patients.

    • Lifespan Considerations boxes provide age-specific information for the care of the patient.
    • Older Adult Considerations boxes provide information on the care of the aging population, which is often the primary focus of the LPN/LVN nurse.
    • Communication boxes illustrate communication strategies through real-life examples of nurse-patient dialogue.
    • Patient Teaching boxes focus on three-way communication among the nurse, patient, and family members, and include topics such as hospital discharge instructions.
    • Health Promotion Considerations boxes highlight information on wellness and disease prevention, including infection control, diet, and pregnancy.
    • Home Health Considerations boxes discuss issues facing patients and their caregivers in the home setting.
    • Medication tables provide quick access to action, dosage, precautions, and nursing considerations for commonly used drugs.
