Nurses today must be able to grow and evolve in order to meet the demands of a changing health care system.  Fundamentals of Nursing helps them on this journey with comprehensive coverage of contemporary professional nursing.

This book has been designed to support student nurses at undergraduate level, particularly those on the Common Foundation Programme and is the only text in the market that equally addresses nursing theory and practice.

"Kozier is an excellent resource for students throughout their training, and could be used as the starting point for most of their assessments.  Overall, it is an excellent text that I will have no hesitation in recommending to my students. " - Dorothy Adam, Lecturer, Nursing & Midwifery, The Robert Gordon University    "The text is an exciting, clear and essential textbook for pre-registration nursing students. It sets the scene, shows application to practice, helps to make nursing practice more understandable and so enhances the student’s learning experience. " - Martin Bailey, Senior Lecturer, Nursing and Applied Clinical Studies, Christ Church University Canterbury

Review:

'I really enjoyed this text. The authors have effectively brought their wealth of experience and understanding to provide an extremely comprehensive resource which addresses all aspects of nursing theory and practice.'

Mary O'Rourke University of Central England, Birmingham

'This new text not only addresses the main themes of nursing practice, it also includes areas that have been previously neglected or addressed in limited detail. I will certainly be recommending it to our students as an appropriate text to be structuring their learning around. The use of interactive materials and weblinks encourages students to be actively involved in the gaining of knowledge, and this approach will certainly be useful as nursing education moves to a more enquiry based approach to learning'.

Lindesay Irvine, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh

‘This is a great text that gives the reader a chance to take sound theoretical knowledge and place it into context within the clinical area. It offers interactive features and case studies that will facilitate student nurses and other health professionals to learn the fundamentals of nursing care’.

Louise Bramley, Nottingham University School of Nursing

‘I really enjoyed reading this book.  The authors have used their wealth of experience in the nursing and education fields to produce written material which makes even difficult concepts easy to follow and understand.  I feel that students will enjoy using this book to enhance their own knowledge and understanding of nursing issues’.

Sharon Urwin, Kingston University and St George's University of London

‘Here is a comprehensive overview of what any nursing student would need to know about in caring for people. The content takes the reader on a journey of learning and exploration of some of the complexities of nursing, giving very practical helpful approaches and strategies for care delivery. The holistic nature of nursing is captured in this very helpful text’.

Helen Glenn, Kings College London
