The 2nd Edition continues to connect what students are learning in class to the real world in which they will practice… introducing them to the pathophysiologic processes of the conditions they’ll encounter in clinical settings.
Chapters organized by body systems help students understand the relationships between the underlying pathology and the patient assessment data, laboratory findings, and diagnostic testing results. Real-world perspectives bridge the gap between the science of disease and clinical patient care. Students clearly see “how” to interpret assessment findings and “why” to choose interventions.
LEARN – Personalized Learning The foundation of the Davis Advantage platform, Personalized Learning, immerses students in an online learning experience tailored to their needs. Students are assessed on their comprehension of key topics from the text, and then are guided through animated mini-lecture videos and dynamic activities to reinforce learning and bring concepts to life. APPLY – Clinical Judgment Clinical Judgment is now included in the Davis Advantage platform to elevate students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning, helping them to build the clinical judgment skills they need to practice safe and effective nursing care and to prepare for the Next Generation NCLEX® with confidence. Progressive case studies featuring real-life, complex clinical situations challenge students to apply knowledge, make informed decisions, and evaluate outcomes. ASSESS – Quizzing Quizzing uses NCLEX®-style questions for assessment and remediation. Its adaptive, question-based format provides the additional practice students need to test their knowledge, master course content, and perform well on course and board exams. See what instructors are saying… “The Capriotti textbook explains pathophysiology in a manner that students can easily grasp. The references to nursing interventions help students apply these concepts in the clinical setting. This is one of the very few textbooks with this combination of didactic content and application.” – Kathy G, Instructor at LeMoyne College “Students love the pathophysiology textbook.” – Anna G, Instructor at Century College “Davis Advantage has taken my course to a whole new level of interaction and engagement with students. It has helped with teaching and learning! I have always loved the top notch quick service from F.A. Davis and the Advantage is a game changer in the classroom, lab, and clinical.” -Melanie M., Instructor at Maysville Community and Technical College
