Introducing VIRTUAL CLINICAL EXCURSIONSa new breed of workbook that is now a critical component of several of Mosby and W.B. Saunders' most prominent nursing texts. This workbook contains an extraordinary new CD-ROM featuring a virtual hospital setting with five highly individual patients. Users can access and review their charts, lab data, and medication administration records, assess them, monitor daily changes when nurses take their vital signs, perform a variety of tests, formulate diagnoses, and planinterventions. Each workbook lesson has a reading assignment from Ignatavicius & Workman: Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Collaborative Care, 4th Edition , as well as activities that involve observing and interacting with the patients in the virtual hospital. The result is a uniquely "hands-on" way to master essential nursing knowledge!
