Undergraduates studying to become a Registered Nurse must learn a wide scope of concepts. Instructors are faced with the challenge: how do you prevent information overload and ensure your students get exactly what they need?

The brand new first edition of Medical Surgical Nursing For Australian Students: A Systems Approach is designed to provide students with exactly what the nursing degree requires of them. Instructors and students want a comprehensive yet digestible single-volume resource – and Brady et al. have delivered.

Offering a truly Australian context, this text focuses on the local healthcare system in a relevant and current way. The case studies support the concept of ‘thinking like a nurse’ – enhancing students’ abilities to use clinical reasoning for the provision of patient care.
