This title presents 53 of the most common physiologic, behavioral, and professional nursing concepts that are core to nursing practice, which are organized in three units. Unit One covers patient profile concepts, which are the concepts that lay the foundation for a patient-centered approach to nursing. Unit Two, the core of the content, emphasizes biophysical and psychosocial concepts that relate to individuals seeking health care. The focus of these concepts is on the health-and-illness continuum across the lifespan. Unit Three covers concepts related to professionalism and the whole of the healthcare system related to the delivery of health care, professional aspects of nursing and health policy, including the QSEN competencies. Four to five priority exemplars at the end of each concept chapter hyperlink to related exemplar content in a core collection of 17 Nursing titles.
