Description

Apply the five patterns of knowing to improve nursing care! Knowledge Development in Nursing: Theory and Process, 11th Edition explores nursing theory and how it is related to nursing research and quality patient care. It examines the principles of knowledge development, using the patterns of knowing to help you develop sound clinical judgment. Each chapter begins with a Basics section, which is followed by a Now That You Know the Basics section providing a deeper understanding of knowledge patterns for more advanced learners. In addition, the content in this edition aligns with the new 2021 AACN Essentials for Nursing Education. Key content in this text is also used as the basis for the creation of the first domain within the AACN Essentials, Knowledge for Nursing Practice, and in other domains within the AACN Essentials. Written by nursing educators Peggy Chinn, Maeona Kramer, and Kathleen Sitzman, this edition reflects the latest thinking in nursing knowledge development and adds emphasis to real-world application.
