Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

High-Acuity Nursing 5e

 

Kathleen Dorman Wagner, EdD, MSN, RN

Karen L. Johnson, PhD, RN

Melanie G. Hardin-Pierce, DNP, RN, ACNP-BC

The fifth edition of High-Acuity Nursing celebrates the twentieth anniversary of this popular book. Broken down into learner-focused, self-paced modules, the book takes complex information and presents it in smaller, more accessible chunks that promote easier mastery by readers. As the modules progress in difficulty, this text addresses the multiple-system problems that nurses face when caring for high-acuity patients.

            With a focus on concepts and principles that can be applied across practice settings and patient populations, High-Acuity Nursing, Fifth Edition, uses a learner-friendly approach that will help nurses and nursing students master the concepts and confidence to succeed in today’s health care settings.

 

New to this edition:

  • New Modules.  Ten new modules have been added to the 5th edition, including a module on the older high-acuity patient!
  • Related Drug Therapy — Major drug therapy pertaining to a particular topic is summarized in a table.  
  • Nursing Management — Nursing Management is summarized in a special new feature.
  • Critical Thinking Check Point exercises — Presented on the book website on MyNursingKit, a case scenario and higher level critical thinking questions test readers’ understanding of chapter concepts.

Wrong access code printed inside brand new text book! I couldn't find any way to notify Amazon.com directly about this text book's printing problem/error so I'm posting it here. I am a nursing student who recently purchased this book, along with several others in my cohort. It appears that Amazon purchased an entire "lot" of these books that all have the same printing error from the publisher (Pearson). The activation code on the front page of the book, under the silver scratch off- is incorrect. When you go to register the book on Pearson's, mynursingkit.com, it actually register's a 7th edition Ecology text. (go figure??) This happened to ALL OF US that purchased through Amazon and not the campus bookstore! When you contact Pearson's customer service, they initially try to give you the run around and tell you to go back to Amazon to get a "new" code. After persisting to speak with a supervisor and making them see this is their problem I finally was able to gain level II customer service, and they (Pearson) finally issued me a access new code for my brand new text book. It is obviously a Pearson publishing error, however Amazon should be aware of this since they are selling a defective product. Hopefully they will go to Pearson and get new access codes to issue with all the new book purchases so we don't have to go through all the trouble of "customer service" techs that can't figure out how to solve the problem.

Thanks,
a few frustrated nursing student's from California

A great textbook that will be an asset for NCLEX prep. However, whoever proofread this text should be fired due to the presence of more than a few typos.

This book is the single most helpful book I have had in my Level-II nursing courses. We're using Lehne and Monahan as main text books, but this high acuity nursing is really stellar and explains things so much more clearly and concisely. Love it!

It is better than the newer edition. the pictures and diagrams are better and the rest of the content is the same (but in a different order). What I don't like is that you also have to purchase the nursing kit to get the correct answers to the chapter reviews...come on, I bought the book, just put the answers in the back...
