Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursing
In this updated edition, Kathryn Neeb continues to squarely address mental health within the scope of practical/vocational nursing, emphasizing that LPN/LVNs most commonly care for patients with psychiatric problems in general patient care settings rather than in specialized psychiatric facilities. This targeted approach, along with her accessible, friendly writing style, meets the legal licensing needs for the role of the LPN/LVN thus making Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursing the leader in the LPN educational market.
