Abstract

[Extract] Contemporary nursing in Australia and internationally is challenging, complex, dynamic and very rewarding. Many of the people we care for, both in the community and in hospitals, are older and sicker than they were a decade ago, oftern with complex health and psychosocial needs. This means that nurses today must be clinically competent, empathic, flexible and kowledgeable. They need a broad and deep understanding of physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, epidemiology, therapeutics, culture, ethics and law, as well as a commitment toevidence-based practice.

Today's nurses have many roles and functions - clinician, educator, leader, researcher, to name just a few. They require highly developed skills in problem solving, critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Today's nurses must be lifelong learners who are confident in the use of information and communication technology, and able to communicate effectively with their patients and with all members of the health care team. Above all, they must care for people in ways that signify respect, acceptance, empathy, connectedness, cultural sensitivity ad genuine concern.

This fourth Australian edition of Kozier and Erb's Fundamentals of Nursing has one again undergone a rigorous review and writing process. Contemporary changes in the regulation of nursing are reflected in the chapters, and this edition continues to focus on the three core philosophies: (1) person-centred care, (2) critical thinking and clinical reasoning, (3) cultural safety.

These three philosophical foundations are interwoven in a meaningful way through each chapter.
