Help your students master the role and responsibilities of the PN in Canadian medical-surgical nursing! The only Canadian medical-surgical nursing text designed for the Practical Nurse student, Linton and Matteson's Medical-Surgical Practical Nursing in Canada provides a solid foundation in the fundamentals of nursing, including roles, settings, and issues and trends in health care. Content includes descriptions of pathology, medical conditions organized by body system, emergency and disaster management, pandemic preparedness, and mental health nursing. Unique to this text is a unit focusing on the older adult — a key patient population that PNs see in practice. Featuring study tools to promote clinical reasoning and judgement, this text helps students prepare for the CPNRE® or REx-PN® licensure examinations and for success as new nurses.

    • UNIQUE! Separate unit on gerontological nursing covers physiological and psychosocial changes in the older adult, along with common problems such as fall prevention, immobility, and incontinence.
    • Nursing care plans illustrate the application of content to the nursing process, with critical thinking questions to encourage thoughtful analysis of patient needs and nursing care.
    • Canada’s unique health care context and cultural landscape is reflected in content relating to race/ethnicity, Indigenous peoples, gender identity, 2SLGBTQI+ community, family composition, recent immigrants, refugees, and vulnerable persons.
    • Inclusion of Canadian statistics and research incorporates references and resources, Canadian nursing best practice guidelines, assessment and screening tools, protocols, and more.
    • Coverage of Canadian medications includes dosages and metric measurements.
    • Get Ready for Exams! section at the end of each chapter includes key points, additional learning resources, and PN competency review questions, addressing the latest Canadian PN competencies and helping to ensure student success on the REx-PN® or CPNRE®.
    • Study tools in the text and on the Evolve website encourage the development of clinical reasoning and judgement, helping students succeed on REx-PN® and CPNRE® licensure examinations.
    • Coverage of current Canadian issues and topics includes Bill C-14 Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), interprofessional collaboration, Indigenous health vis-à-vis the Truth and Reconciliation Commission findings and Calls to Action, pandemic planning and preparedness, and more.
    • Interprofessional Collaborative Care boxes highlight the team approach to patient care, helping nurses prioritize and safely assign tasks to other health professionals.
    • Patient Teaching plans provide bulleted lists of nursing instructions for patients, stressing the role and responsibility of the PN in patient education.
    • Cultural Considerations boxes discuss the needs of culturally diverse patients when planning nursing care.
    • Health Promotion Considerations boxes highlight timely wellness and disease prevention topics.
    • Put on Your Thinking Cap boxes allow students to pause and consider the practical implications of what they have just read.
    • Nutritional Considerations boxes emphasize the role nutrition plays in disease and holistic nursing care.
    • Complementary and Alternative Therapies boxes highlight nontraditional therapies along with precautions and possible side effects.
    • Key terms with phonetic pronunciations help improve the terminology and language skills of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students and students with limited proficiency in English before they enter clinical practice.
