Judith Wilkinson and Karen Van Leuven help students with a fresh new approach to teaching Fundamentals of Nursing with their innovative two volume presentation.'Volume 1: Theory, Concepts, and Applications' (ISBN 13: 978 0 8036 1197 9 1089 pages, hard cover, full color) includes the 'Electronic Study Guide' CD (the equivalent of a 500 page student workbook, Free!).'Volume 2: Thinking and Doing Toward Performing Like a Nurse' includes everything students need for learning procedures in clinical or skills lab. This is incredibly convenient for students because there is no need to carry the didactic material in Volume 1 to the lab or to carry the applications based content in Volume 2 to lecture type classes. Nor will students have to wade through the text heavy content, boxes, and tables to follow the 'think and do' procedures in the lab as presented in other Fundamentals texts.'Electronic Study Guide, Volume 1' includes an 'Electronic Study Guide' on CD ROM which provides interactive learning activities and supplemental information typically found in student study guides at the student's fingertips for every chapter. The ESG allows students to set their own pace for learning and independent study, but also provides materials that can be submitted for review/grading by the instructor.Consistent with the book's appeal across a range of learning styles, the ESG provides for every chapter: Learning Outcomes; Supplemental Materials; Knowledge Check Response Sheet; Critical Thinking Response Sheet (for the questions in Volume 1); Thinking Critically About...Response Sheet (for the exercises Volume 2); Mastery Exercises; Knowledge Checks Answers; Mastery Exercises Answers; Toward Evidence Based Practice; Suggested Responses; Reading More About...(suggested readings); Resources for Health Professionals; and, Bonus Chapter on the Canadian Health Care Delivery System (with all the afore mentioned features).Selected chapters also have: Knowledge Map (concept map version of the chapter content); Care Plan (supplemental to what's in the book); Care Map (concept map version of the care plan); Additionally, outside the chapter structure, the Electronic Study Guide contains: Procedure Checklists; Selected heart, lung, bowel, and vascular sounds, including blood pressure; Tutor Test Bank for students (over 200 items no overlap with instructors' test bank can be used to self assess as well as test); and, Glossary.
