    Awarded Second Place in the 2021 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Gerontologic Nursing

    Focusing on the content that students need to know for effective practice, this text offers evidence-based coverage of the aging process, factors contributing to healthy aging, and unique aspects of disease presentation and management in older adults. Content is logically organized in five units that provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of the aging process and guide students through the complexities of gerontological care. The tenth edition retains the text’s acclaimed holistic approach through insightful coverage of the psychosocial, legal, ethical, and spiritual elements of patient care, with updated content throughout to help students meet the challenges of a changing healthcare environment and an increasingly diverse population. This edition also includes Next Generation NCLEX®-Style Case Studies and Questions, which help students review important concepts and practice for the next generation NCLEX®, as well as Unfolding Patient Stories that correlate directly to simulated patient scenarios in vSim® for Nursing Gerontology, which equip students with a consistent, realistic experience in patient interaction and enhanced preparation for practice.
