You hire only the best nurses for your medical-surgical unit and you count on them to deliver optimum patient care even in the most complicated situations. The best way to measure and assess their readiness for anything that could come their way in the medical-surgical unit is through evidence-based competencies. Now you don't have to spend time researching evidence-based competencies to assess your nurses' skill sets! Author Barbara A. Brunt, MA, MN, RN-BC, has taken her best-selling series and cited each competency with solid, reputable evidence so you can benchmark your staff against industry standards. This second edition is fully revised with the latest regulations from The Joint Commission and other regulatory bodies. It ensures you have everything you need to meet and exceed evidence-based competency requirements. As a book and CD-ROM pair, this resource is a complete evidence-based competency program created specifically for assessing, validating, and documenting the skills of your medical-surgical nurses. You'll find proven tips and strategies for effectively evaluating the training needs of your staff.
