Whether it’s an entire course on psychiatric nursing or integrating these principles into an existing course, this is the text that’s concise, engaging, and informative. It offers a holistic approach to mental health nursing that explores nursing diagnoses for both physiological and psychological disorders, while highlighting the essential content students need to build a solid foundation. With an entire chapter devoted to caring for patients with mental illness and substance use disorders in general practice settings, this text appeals to all nursing students.

Whether teaching in-person or online, this complete, integrated solution aligns seamlessly with the textbook and equips instructors with actionable analytics to track students’ progress, remediate where needed, and facilitate an active learning environment.
 
  • LEARN—Personalized Learning
The foundation of the Davis Advantage platform, Personalized Learning, immerses students in an online learning experience tailored to their needs. Students are assessed on their comprehension of key topics from the text, and then are guided through animated mini-lecture videos and dynamic activities to reinforce learning and bring concepts to life.
 
  • APPLY—Clinical Judgment
Clinical Judgment develops students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning, helping them to build the clinical judgment skills they need to practice safe and effective nursing care and to prepare for the Next Generation NCLEX® with confidence. Progressive case studies featuring real-life, complex clinical situations challenge students to apply knowledge, make informed decisions, and evaluate outcomes.
 
  • ASSESS—Quizzing
Quizzing uses NCLEX®-style questions for assessment and remediation. Its adaptive, question-based format provides the additional practice students need to test their knowledge, master course content, and perform well on course and board exams.
