In today's world, it's important to see public health nursing within the larger paradigm of primary health care. The just published Public Health Nursing: Practicing Population-Based Care, Third Edition by Marie Truglio-Londrigan and Sandra B. Lewenson challenges educators and students to broaden their perspectives on public health and working with populations.
Students in Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs need to know how to conceptualize, design, and implement their research in order to become agents of change in multiple healthcare settings. The just published Clinical Research for the Doctor of Nursing Practice, Third Edition by Allison J. Terry walks students through each crucial step of the DNP project while demystifying common challenges, such as how to develop a research question, select a methodology, and develop a proposal for implementation.
The wait is over for the highly anticipated Midwifery & Women's Health Nurse Practitioner Certification Review Guide, Fourth Edition by Beth M. Kelsey and Jamille Nagtalon-Ramos. We debuted it at the recent American College of Nurse-Midwives Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.

We are excited to announce a new edition of the pioneering Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System by Julian T. Parer, Tekoa L. King, and Tomoaki Ikeda. This essential reference reviews the practice of fetal heart rate monitoring. Beginning with a description of the anatomy of fetal circulation, placental function as a respiratory organ, and acid-base balance, it also presents normal fetal cardiovascular and cerebral metabolism.
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.
While women make up more than half of the population in the United States, health care isn't always tailored to them. The just published A Guide to Women’s Health, Second Edition by Tolu Oyelowo and Judith Johnson seeks to change that. A practical and multidisciplinary text, it enables students and clinicians to identify and treat conditions quickly and effectively.
Concise and easy-to-use, the Second Edition offers evidence-based information on conventional, complementary, and alternative care choices for a wide-range of conditions affecting women. Topics include epidemiology, etiology, signs and symptoms, diagnostic and management considerations, self-care, and wellness.
Despite providing the foundation for much of nursing education from medical-surgical nursing to pharmacology, pathophysiology continues to intimidate many students. While most textbooks offer too much or not enough information, the new edition of Lachel Story's Pathophysiology: A Practical Approach selects the ideal level of content and delivers it in a student-friendly, accessible way. Praised by both instructors and students for its clear writing style, use of dynamic images, and current research and epidemiological trends, it employs a concept-based approach.
Nursing students and professionals who work with the chronically ill need to understand not only their clients' conditions but also the impact that those conditions have on daily life. The recently published Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Chronic Illness and Disability, Sixth Edition by Donna Falvo and Beverley E. Holland explores the impact of chronic illness and disability on the capacity to function on a physical, psychological, social, recreational, and vocational level.
Designed to help students and professionals learn basic medical terminology in order to understand symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses, it also helps them interpret reports and documents associated with client care. The text also focuses on how to help clients build and strengthen their personal resources so they may achieve optimal functioning and full participation in all aspects of their lives.
Mary Elizabeth O'Brien's Spirituality in Nursing: Standing on Holy Ground is perhaps the most comprehensive text on spirituality and nursing currently in print. Now in its Sixth Edition, it continues as an invaluable resource for spirituality-focused nursing courses at all levels of education. Examining the relationship between spirituality and the practice of nursing, topics include the history of nursing from a spiritual perspective, how to assess a patient's spiritual needs, and the nurse's role in spiritual care.
As nursing informatics continues to grow and bring value to the healthcare industry, nursing students need current, practical, and powerful tools to facilitate the move from information through knowledge to wisdom. One such resource is the recently published Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge, Fourth Edition by Dee McGonigle and Kathleen Mastrian. With content grounded in the authors' Foundation of Knowledge Model, it teaches students about the history of healthcare informatics, current issues, basic informatics concepts, and health information management applications.
