Published by Pearson (August 15th 2018) - Copyright © 2019
For courses in gerontology and gerontological nursing.
A holistic guide to nursing care for older adults, across settings
Pearson eText for Gerontological Nursing is a comprehensive, research-based guide to the nursing care of older adults. It addresses normal and pathophysiological changes of aging, as well as psychosocial, cultural, and public health influences. With a focus on “adding life to years,” not just extending life, the text illuminates evidence and best practices that promote safe, effective assessment, diagnosis, and outcomes. The 4th edition provides new evidence and standards affecting the care of aging populations, plus new practice opportunities preparing students for the NCLEX-RN® exam and nursing practice.
Note: Gerontological Nursing, 4th Edition, is offered only in a Pearson eText format or as an eText from other vendors such as VitalSource®, Redshelf, or Amazon®. Students can also purchase a low-cost, loose-leaf print version of the title through their Pearson eText.
Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Portable access lets students study on the go, even offline. And, reading analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.
NOTE: Pearson eText is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Pearson eText access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson eText.
