Description/Summary

Cynthia Bautista is a contributing author, "Chapter 46 Nursing Management: Patients with Neurologic Disorders."

Book Description: Focus on Adult Health: Medical-Surgical Nursing, is uniquely designed to prepare today’s students to succeed as practicing nurses by focusing on the most important medical disorders and key nursing responsibilities. “As the demand for nurses continues to grow, new nurses are entering a dynamic and challenging work environment, and many feel unprepared,” said Linda H. Pellico, RN, PhD, the lead author and editor of the textbook. “We developed this textbook and related tools to prepare students for the reality of medical-surgical nursing. We need to teach students how to think like a nurse, and how to focus quickly on the most critical aspects. Beyond taking care of what you see, nursing is about predicting and preventing risks, so this book details risk factors, clinical presentation, and treatment.”
