For years Kozier & Erb’s Fundamentals of Nursing has been the gold standard in helping students embarking on their nursing careers. This second Australian edition retains many of the features that have made this textbook the number-one choice of nursing students and lecturers.

To further enhance this popular fundamentals textbook and ensure its appropriate application for Australian students, nursing academics from across Australia were invited to review and comment on each of the 52 chapters. Based on their feedback the new edition is even better than the first.  The new edition presents the fundamentals of nursing care within the framework of the nursing process. To ensure that Australian nursing academics and their students have the most current learning tool, the new edition now incorporates the ANMAC competency standards.  The text is built around three pivotal philosophies:
  - Person-centred care
  - Cultural safety
  - Critical thinking
We are confident that the new structure and features will be very well received and further improve a stellar product.  This text offers an accessible writing style and focuses on practical applications with real-world Australian examples and case studies. The text is supported by a state-of-the art technology package to enhance the learning process and course delivery.
