Evidence-Informed Health Policy By Jacqueline M. Loversidge and Joyce Zurmehly What happens in health policy at local, state, and federal levels directly affects patients, nurses, and nursing practice.

In Evidence-Informed Health Policy, authors Jacqueline M. Loversidge and Joyce Zurmehly demystify health policymaking and equip nurses and other healthcare professionals with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to navigate the first of many steps into health policy.

FEATUR ED TITLE

Unfolding Health Assessment Case Studies for the Student Nurse By Kristi Maynard and Andrea Adimando Critical thinking can be the difference between keeping patients safe and putting them in harm’s way. As a student nurse, you may find that mastering these skills is challenging, and you may lack confidence in assessing your patient’s health. Case studies are beneficial, but some are more effective than others. Unfolding case studies provide new information while you read, teaching you to think critically and apply what you learned in nursing school to real-life situations you’ll face on the job. Authors Kristi Maynard and Andrea Adimando created Unfolding Health Assessment Case Studies for the Student Nurse as a practical, straightforward study tool for your health assessment class and the NCLEX. Additional Resources Available: Faculty Resource Guide
