Book Description: This portable book condenses the essential, need-to-know information from the Ignatavicius & Workman text into a practical A-Z reference for clinical days. The CLINICAL COMPANION formerly entitled "Pocket Companion" has been thoroughly revised by an author team with a wealth of experience in walking students through clinicals. Its newly streamlined format is easier than ever to read and enables readers to find essential information in seconds. The Clinical Companion now incorporates the very latest, 2001-2002 NANDA nursing diagnoses and includes both the complete 2001-2002 NANDA list and the Communication Quick Reference for Spanish-Speaking Clients. It's an essential companion for clinicals.
