N ew editions of two popular AACN-branded textbooks written and edited by clinical experts in critical and progressive care nursing are hot off the press. The third editions of "AACN Essentials of Critical Care Nursing" (product code 128750) and "AACN Essentials of Progressive Care Nursing" (product code 128765) were edited by Suzanne M. Burns, professor emeritus at the School of Nursing, University of Virginia, and a consultant and expert in critical care clinical practice and research. "AACN Essentials of Critical Care Nursing" covers basic to advanced critical care concepts. It's the ideal resource for nurses new to critical care, those who have worked in the field for a short time and nurses who moved to critical care from another area. Information on new guidelines and the latest research is targeted to clinical nurse specialists, managers, educators, preceptors and others who influence care at the bedside. The book includes content from AACN's online Essentials of Critical Care Orientation, key information to prepare for CCRN certification and much more. Presented in prose - not outline form - it is a great tool for hospitals and staff nurses. The enhanced third edition of "AACN Essentials of Progressive Care Nursing" provides foundational information to equip nurses working in high acuity and progressive care, and those preparing for PCCN certification in progressive care nursing. As one of very few resources addressing the educational needs unique to the progressive care environment, "AACN Essentials of Progressive Care Nursing" succinctly presents essential information about how to safely and competently care for acutely ill patients and their families.
