Learn the therapeutic skills you need for your role in psychiatric nursing care! Psychiatric Nursing uses a practical, three-pronged approach to psychotherapeutic management that clearly explains how to care for patients with psychiatric disorders. It emphasizes the nurse's three primary tools: themselves, medications, and the environment. Written by Norman L. Keltner, Carol E. Bostrom, and Teena McGuinness, each an educator and advanced practice nurse, this text covers the latest trends and treatments and provides a solid, real-world foundation for the practice of safe and effective psychiatric nursing care.
Full-text reviews of the current edition will be commissioned in anticipation of the revision. First-draft manuscript of new key chapters will be reviewed by at least two nurse educators and/or clinicians for completeness and accuracy. TestBank questions will be reviewed by at least one nurse educator for completeness and accuracy.
