How to request a faculty desk copy & BONUS teacher's resources

In a time when the health care system is plagued by over-prescription, over-emphasis on pathology and the de-humanization of care, nurses experience a growing gap between technical know-how and nursing’s traditional role of caring for the whole person.

Precision Nursing Science sets out to change this situation and restore the traditional intent of nursing. It is the first textbook for advanced practice and registered nurses that defines an “energetics first” integrative holistic approach to person-centered care as precision nursing science.
