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.

This text is probably the most well-written book I've read in nursing school. It is concise and informative, and it really reinforces med-surg and patho/pharm content. Read morePublished 17 months ago by B T McGee
