For pediatric nursing courses and skills labs. Prentice Hall's Real Nursing Skills series offers students the complete foundation for competency in performing clinical nursing skills. The volumes in this series consist of CD-ROMs with comprehensive procedures and rationales demonstrated in hundreds of realistic video clips, animations, illustrations, and photographs. For each skill, students will review: Purpose * Equipment * Preparation * Procedure * Post-Procedure * Expected Outcomes * Documentation * and Variation (if applicable). This is the only skills series designed to help students visualize how to perform clinical nursing skills and understanding the concepts and rationales for each skill. Throughout the videos, students will experience the real-life aspects of: therapeutic communication between the nurse and the client, the client's reaction to invasive skills, and cultural, gender, and age diversity among nurses and clients.
