Description

Endorsed by the Australian College of Critical Care Nurses (ACCCN)
ACCCN is the peak professional organisation representing critical care nurses in Australia

Written by leading critical care nursing clinicians, Leanne Aitken, Andrea Marshall and Wendy Chaboyer, the 4th edition of Critical Care Nursing continues to encourage and challenge critical care nurses and students to develop world-class practice and ensure the delivery of the highest quality care.

The text addresses all aspects of critical care nursing and is divided into three sections: scope of practice, core components and specialty practice, providing the most recent research, data, procedures and guidelines from expert local and international critical care nursing academics and clinicians.

Alongside its strong focus on critical care nursing practice within Australia and New Zealand, the 4th edition brings a stronger emphasis on international practice and expertise to ensure students and clinicians have access to the most contemporary practice insights from around the world.
