    Kristen Mauk's Gerontological Nursing, Fourth Edition Offers an Interdisciplinary Approach to a Growing Population

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Apr 27, 2017 12:32:03 PM

    Over the next three decades, the U.S. population of people over 65 is expected to grow by more than half. By 2050, worldwide life expectancy is also projected to grow by nearly eight years. With more people living longer, health care has never been more important. That's why we recently published a new edition of Kristen Mauk's trusted Gerontological Nursing: Competencies for Care, a text that focuses on caring for older adults through a holistic and interdisciplinary approach.

    Based on the framework of the core competencies for baccalaureate nursing education published by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing, it provides the structure necessary to ensure that nursing students attain the recommended knowledge necessary to provide excellent care to older adults.

    New Text Examines Why Heath Promotion Is a Key Component of Nursing Practice

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Nov 28, 2016 4:23:16 PM

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health promotion "enables people to increase control over their own health. It covers a wide range of social and environmental interventions that are designed to benefit and protect individual people’s health and quality of life by addressing and preventing the root causes of ill health, not just focusing on treatment and cure." As such, health promotion has long been a central part of nursing practice. Increasingly, nurses have needed to adopt an active role in promoting the health of individuals, families, communities, and nations.
