Offering a greater emphasis on evidence-based practice than any other book for the course, Community and Public Health Nursing, 2nd Edition, demonstrates best practices in the field and helps students develop the abstract critical thinking skills and complex reasoning abilities they need to make connections between data and practice decisions. Succinct, manageable, and logically organized, the Second Edition focuses on the individual in the context of the community setting and on the global community, reflecting increasingly global healthcare concerns.
To help students develop the clinical judgment they will need in their future careers, the book includes an exceptional array of case-based activities. Case studies in every chapter focus on regional, national, and international community settings and are supported by online answers, discussion questions, and reflective journaling assignments. In addition, five unique, interactive online case studies complement each Part in the text. Finally, the expanded and visually enhanced “Adam’s County” online resource includes case-based questions, activities, critical thinking assignments, and—new to this edition—suggested answers.
The Second Edition features an increased focus on non-communicable diseases as a global trend, enhanced content on program evaluation, new examples, and a wide range of online teaching and learning resources to save you time and help your students succeed.
