This pack contains 1 copy of Kozier and Erb's Fundamentals of Nursing 4th edition, and 1 copy of Skills in Clinical Nursing.

The 4th Australian edition of Kozier and Erb’s Fundamentals of Nursing has undergone a rigorous review and writing process and reflects the contemporary changes in the regulation of nursing.

It continues to focus on the three core philosophies of person-centred care, critical thinking and clinical reasoning and cultural safety. These three philosophical foundations are interwoven in a meaningful way through each chapter.

With an evidence-based approach, students will develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, clinical reasoning and learn to care for people in ways that signify respect, acceptance, empathy, connectedness, cultural sensitivity and genuine concern.

Note: This edition provides relevant nursing diagnoses written in a way that is reflective of Australia nursing practice and nomenclature and does not refer to NANDA taxonomy of diagnostic terminology.


Berman, Skills in Clinical Nursing is a visual Australian resource to support nurses to achieve competency in the most relevant skills performed in clinical practice, aligned to the NMBA standards for professional practice.

The first Australian edition of Skills in Clinical Nursing is a definitive resource that has been designed as a practical and easy-to-navigate reference for both the classroom and clinical practice settings. This text includes 95 of the most important skills performed by nursing students and graduates, organised from simple to complex and written to reflect current evidence-based practice guidelines.
