Synergy For Clinical Excellence: The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care
Synergy for Clinical Excellence: The AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care, Second Edition is a unique text that encompasses the history and development of the nurse and patient characteristics inherent in the Synergy Model. Based on a decade of work by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), it can be used as the theoretical framework for the curriculum for universities, the model of practice for hospitals seeking Magnet status, the main theory behind AACN certifications, the framework for dissertations and DNP projects, and part of the foundation for the Consensus Model for Advanced Practice Nursing. The Second Edition includes new chapters on integrating the Synergy Model in the perioperative and ambulatory settings, applying the Synergy Model in practice, and tying the Synergy Model to the APRN Consensus Model. Completely updated and revised, it also provides sample test questions, practical examples, and the latest information to help prepare exam candidates.
