Overview

Gerontological Nursing is a holistic, 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, diagnoses, and outcomes.

Pearson eText is an easy-to-use digital textbook that you can read online or offline. Make it your own by adding highlights and notes, and learn on the go with the mobile app. At the end of your subscription, you can opt to renew access to your eText and personalized notes.
