Navigating your Hospital Stay: A Guide Written by Expert Nurses


The 379 page book, has 5 sections. The first two sections address the  orientation to the hospital environment and nursing practice interventions that educate, comfort and  keep patients safe. The other 3 sections present information about common chronic diseases, frequent surgical procedures and special patient populations.  Each chapter concludes with a checklist that can be used by patients to  assess their knowledge about their ongoing healthcare needs or self care practices that are necessary for healing and recovery at home. 

Many of the CNS authors are active with the NEOCNS affiliate and NACNS. The book serves as a validation of the tremendous impact CNSs have on advancing nursing practice , role-modeling evidence based practice and  providing care to the most critically and acutely ill patients in our hospitals today. It highlights the role of the clinical nurse in keeping patients safe, promoting healing and attenuating suffering.... the only book of its kind written for patients and their families.
