Lewis’s Medical-Surgical Nursing has long been considered a comprehensive and reliable resource for nursing students preparing for their transition into clinical practice. This sixth edition has been fully updated to incorporate the latest research, data, current clinical practice, procedures and guidelines.

The text addresses core skills and knowledge that students need to pass their exams and go on to provide expert clinical care. It prepares nurses to assess patients, understand underlying diseases and their signs and symptoms, and go on to plan and deliver care. The text encourages readers to develop their clinical reasoning and problem-solving skills in order to apply theory to their work.

This edition has been produced by leading expert nursing academics and clinicians who bring a strengthened focus on inclusion and diversity.
