Practice Considerations for Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners (3rd edition) is a comprehensive textbook for all nurse practitioners and advanced practice nurses working in acute care. Organized in both a systems and specialty-topics approach, the text features over 360 of the most common conditions experienced by adult patients in acute care practice.
Using a reader-friendly outline format, coverage of each condition includes defining terms, incidence/predisposing factors, subjective and physical examination findings, diagnostic tests, and the latest evidence-based management guidelines and strategies. This text is a go-to resource for everyday practice, as well as for those preparing for national certification or re-certification.
Although many practitioners may be highly specialized, this text is designed as an invaluable tool for the entire scope of acute care including those practicing as intensivists, or hospitalists, or in critical care, internal medicine, or emergency department settings.
