  • "This easy-to-read psychiatric nursing book uses multiple pedagogical methods to meet the needs of all students. As with similar books, it includes critical thinking questions and case studies. What I find invaluable as an educator are the annotated references at the end of each chapter. These are a wonderful teaching tool not seen in most undergraduate textbooks. This second edition adds tables that provide examples of nursing interventions and rationales, the concept maps, and where applicable, changes in diagnostic criteria for newer diagnoses proposed for the DSM-5. These are valuable additions that help make the material come alive for students new to psychiatric nursing. The margin notes and annotated references are features that are especially valuable to novice nurses wanting to immerse themselves in the field of psychiatric nursing." - Cherie G.
