As with the first edition, the text in ACCCNs Critical Care Nursing 2e reflects the expertise of ACCCNs highly-qualified team of local and international critical care nursing academics and clinicians.This authoritative nursing resource takes a patient-centred approach, encouraging practising critical care nurses and students to develop effective, high-quality critical care nursing practice.
