The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's RN standards for practice (2016) has replaced the National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse (2006). This new revised edition of DeLaune for 2017 has incorporated the changes necessary to reflect the progression in thinking of the profession.

Australian and New Zealand Fundamentals of Nursing provides comprehensive coverage of fundamental nursing concepts, skills and standards of practice that will challenge introductory nursing students to learn and apply critical thinking skills for culturally diverse populations in a variety of environments. Research, evidence-based practice issues are highlighted to help students prepare for delivering care across a continuum of settings. This book highlights the core themes of nursing, including nurse, person, health and environment.

This text is complemented by the text Clinical Psychomotor Skills: Assessment tools for Nursing by Joanne Tollefson and Elspeth Hillman.

New to this Edition

  • Revised and updated for the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's RN standards for practice (2016) by our expanded lead author Lauren McTier

  • Adapted from the well respected DeLaune & Ladner text, Fundamentals of Nursing: Standards and Practice, to suit the nursing scope of practice, regulatory, cultural, legal, ethical requirements for students in Australia and New Zealand.

  • This fundamental text links closely with our text Clinical Psychomotor Skills: Assessment tools for Nurses 6th edition, allowing students to easily match theory to clinical practice.

  • As part of the adaptation process, our core and contributing authors have worked closely together to add 4 NEW chapters relevant to this region covering Palliative care, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Rural and remote health and Mental health

  • Includes 3 YEAR access to a full suite of online interactive and visual resources in CourseMate, including an integrated eBook, interactive teaching and learning tools including clinical skills videos, heart and lung audio resources, animations, revision quizzes and more!
