Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students: A Short Reference Manual

Delivering comprehensive and ethical patient-cenetered care is the goal of every nurse--and every nursing student. Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students is a concise and easy-to-use reference manual to assist nurses in achieving this practice goal. Although the manual addresses a broad spectrum of clinical situations, the challenge of patient communication underlies ever chapter. While evaluative strategies and therapeutic interventions frequently change, communication--with patients, their loved ones, and other members of the healthcare team--is a timeless and personal art. The concepts described in Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students are as important to patient care as any diagnostic or management technique. When a nurse or nursing student masters the art of communication with patients and has learned to identify and resolve ethical problems, she or he has acquired enduring, career-enhancing skills. Most importantly, she or he will provide better care to patients.

--Anthony Chipas, PhD, CRNA
Division Director
Anesthesia for Nurses Program
Medical University of South Carolina

At last. . . a combined chemistry & physics nursing anesthesia text.

This textbook offers combined coverage of chemistry and physics to help students learn the content needed to master the underlying principles of nursing anesthesia. Because many graduate nursing students are uncomfortable with chemistry and physics, this text presents only the specific content in chemistry and physics that relates to anesthesia. Written in a conversational, accessible style, the book teaches at a highly understandable level, so as to bridge the gap between what students recall from their undergraduate biochemistry and physics courses, and what they need to know as nurse anesthetists.

The book contains many illustrations that demonstrate how the scientific concepts relate directly to clinical application in anesthesia. Chapters cover key topics relating to anesthesiology, including the basics of both chemistry and physics, fluids, a concentration on gas laws, states of matter, acids and bases, electrical circuits, radiation, and radioactivity.

With this text, students will benefit from:

  • A review of the math, chemistry, and physics basics that relate to clinical anesthesia
  • A conversational presentation of just what students need to know, enabling a fast and complete mastery of clinically relevant scientific concepts
  • Heavy use of illustrations throughout chapters to complement the text
  • End-of-chapter review questions that help students assess their learning

    Sue Barton Student Nurse (Sue Barton, Volume 1)

    New softcover edition: Introductory book to the Sue Barton series. This is the story of Sue Bartons first year of training as a probationer and then as a student nurse. Sue, with her red hair and eager spirit, is a very likable person - direct, outspoken, capable of mistakes, capable also of warm attachments and a courageous devotion to the service which she soon loves. With her pals, Kit and Connie, she submits to the discipline and rigorous training which are required of every good hospital nurse. Her love of humor gets her in and out of several scrapes: she tumbles into the laundry chute; she tries to defend her fellow student from the inevitable hazing; she gets into an amusing pickle with an Italian patient who speaks no English. Her warm heart and delightful spirit make friends for her among the patients and even win the occasional approbation of the stern staff. Her femininity has more than a casual effect on Dr. Barry, the ablest of the young interns. Sues student years are alive with color and incident: the tests which she must pass to win her cap; the mistakes, very human in themselves, which almost ruin her career; her struggle with a delirious patient, a struggle which tries her courage to the utmost; Christmas in the hospital, when the entire staff comes together for one spontaneous celebration. Whether or not a reader has the ambition to become a nurse, she will find in this story a true picture of the training school of a great hospital and a heart warming friendship with a fun, joyous young woman.

    This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints.

    So You Want To Be A Nurse?: Success Strategies for Nursing Students

    This eBook originated from my experience as a nurse educator and academic administrator for a variety of nursing programs.

I want to share with you some thoughts and suggestions in how your journey as a nursing student may somehow be hopefully impacted by my “words of wisdom”. Students have limited resources to assist them in understanding what to expect in their journey to become a nurse. This short eBook is designed to provide a general overview to aid students, their families and/or significant others in gaining a better understanding of nursing schools. I offer my thoughts to you for whatever assistance they may provide you. Chapter 1 discusses some of the considerations and options involved in the decision to become a nurse and if it is your calling. Chapter 2 discusses various issues and consideration as you get ready for nursing school. Information is provided to aid you in deciding which nursing program is right for you including information on regulatory issues and the licensing examination. Admission requirements, tuition and fees, and financial aid options are also discussed. Chapter 3 discusses what you are going to need once you start nursing school.

    Cherry Ames Boxed Set (Books 1-4) Student Nurse, Senior Nurse, Army Nurse & Chief Nurse

    The first boxed set, Cherry Ames Boxed Set 1-4, introduces our beloved heroine in her four earliest adventures: Student Nurse, Senior Nurse, Army Nurse, and Chief Nurse!

    With a heart of pure gold and a true yearning to make a difference in the world, eighteen-year-old Cherry Ames leaves her hometown and enters nursing school, embarking on a lifetime of adventures. Follow Cherry through the introductory four-book set as she grows from student nurse to chief nurse, all the while making friends, pushing the limits of authority, leading her nursing colleagues, and sleuthing and solving mysteries. Smart, courageous, mischievous, quick-witted, and above all, devoted to nursing, Cherry Ames meets adventure head-on whereever she goes.


    Cherry Ames, Student Nurse
    In Student Nurse, Cherry starts nursing school at Spencer with a mixture of anxiety and anticipation - would she have what it takes to be a nurse? She leaves her quiet town of Hilton, Illinois for the bustle of hospital life, to meet challenges she wouldnt have imagined. The U.S. is at war. Many nurses have gone to the front, and there is a shortage of RNs at Spencer-which Cherry and her classmates help to fill, as they learn the skills they need to graduate. And who is the mysterious patient in the secret room that no one seems to know anything about? Should Cherry risk expulsion to save his life?


    Cherry Ames, Senior Nurse
    In Senior Nurse, Cherry realizes that "a senior really must be a little more sober and responsible" - perhaps she should have warned the head nurse right away about the rabbit that had been smuggled into the pediatric ward. But the children had enjoyed it so! As "lofty" seniors, Cherry and her friends each "adopt" a probationer (first-year student) to mentor. Why did her probie have to be dull and sullen Mildred Burnham? Dr. Joe Fortune has discovered a new way to synthesize penicillin - which could make a life or death difference on the battle front. But how did word of it become common knowledge around Spencer? Cherry discovers that Mildred has more to her than she thought as together they face the dangerous thieves who have stolen Dr. Joes formula.


    Cherry Ames, Army Nurse
    In Army Nurse, Cherry has made the difficult decision facing all her classmates - should she enlist in the military or practice nursing on the homefront? Shes graduated from Spencer and earned the right to put "RN" after her name, and as an Army nurse, she is now "Lieutenant Ames." The Army nurses are also soldiers, and endure a grueling basic training under the harsh Sergeant Deake (whom Cherry nicknames "Lovey," much to his chagrin). No one knows where the Spencer unit will be deployed until they are shipped off without warning - to Panama City. Who is the mysterious old Indian whom Cherry and her corpsman Bunce find collapsed in an abandoned house? He is obviously very ill, but with what? Can Dr. Joes newly developed serum help?


    Cherry Ames, Chief Nurse
    In Chief Nurse, Cherry is whisked off to a new assignment on an island in the Pacific close to the battlefront -as Acting Chief Nurse! Colonel Pillsbee thinks she is too "young and pretty" to successfully supervise sixty nurses and 200 corpsmen. Can she do it? For the first time Cherry and the nurses of the Spencer unit have to work under fire, in a makeshift tent hospital uncomfortably close to the fighting. When the casualties pour in, the nurses and doctors work night and day, constantly under danger of attack by the Japanese. When the other Lieutenant Ames, Cherrys twin brother Charlie, is unexpectedly stationed nearby, Charlie and Cherry piece together the mystery behind the silence of an injured pilot - which involves a secret enemy weapon.

    [A] welcome addition to the reference materials necessary for the study of nurse anesthesia....The textbook is divided into logical, easy to use sections that cover all areas necessary for the practice of nurse anesthesia....This is a text that is easy to read and able to be incorporated into any nurse anesthesia chemistry and physics course.

It is written in a clear, conversational style to counteract the trepidation that often accompanies the study of chemistry and physics, and includes only those core scientific concepts that relate to clinical anesthesia application.

These new features are the direct result of knowledge gained from on-line and traditional classroom teaching experiences. They include chapter summaries, additional questions and answers at the end of each chapter specific to nurse anesthesia, end-of-chapter summaries, and lists of formulas and constants discussed in the book. Fifteen videos vividly demonstrate the key principles of the chemistry and physics of nurse anesthesia. Corresponding to various sections of the book, they supplement and illustrate text content. Also available are revised PowerPoint slides for faculty use. The first edition of this popular text is currently being used by eight nurse anesthesia programs throughout the United States and many additional programs plan to adopt the second edition.

    New to the Second Edition:

    • Emphasizes content in chemistry and physics that relates specifically to anesthesia, with a strong focus on gases
    • Includes case studies to illustrate and reinforce knowledge
    • Provides additional end-of-chapter problems focused on anesthesia
    • Relates core scientific concepts to clinical anesthesia application
