The Dictionary of Nursing Theory and Research provides a compilation
of definitions and discussions of terms that are commonly
encountered in the nursing literature. In this third edition of our
dictionary we have retained and revised most of the terms in the earlier
versions and have added many new ones. The new terms are in response
to evolutionary changes that have occurred over the intervening years.
We have added entries for evidence-based practice and Internet research.

Welcome to the second edition of Understanding
Medical-Surgical Nursing! We are thrilled with
the enthusiastic feedback we received on the
first edition, and we have worked to make this second edition
even more student-friendly. To those of you who gave
us valuable suggestions on the first edition, thank you. We
have incorporated much of what you told us into this edition
while maintaining our original vision for the book.
We initially embarked on the first edition because we
were unsatisfied with the materials available for practical/
vocational nursing students.
