Featured eBook: Core Curriculum Ambulatory Care Nursing

Click here to read this book online.

“The Core Curriculum for Ambulatory Care Nursing, is intended as a reference for nurses in the ambulatory care practice arena to advance their knowledge and understanding of patient care issues, as well as their role and the context of nursing in ambulatory care settings in the current health care environment. In recognition of the value of this continuing education activity, contact hours are offered following the study of each chapter. Additionally, the text was organized and written for the purpose of providing a comprehensive review for those nurses who work in ambulatory care and wish to prepare for certification as an expert ambulatory care nurse through the American Nurses Credentialing Center's certification examination. Nurses who practice in other settings and are considering transitioning to ambulatory care will find it valuable in understanding this specialty area. Furthermore, those nurses who have decided to make such a transition will find the text a valuable resource in orienting to their new role in ambulatory care.” *
