This book is the Single volume of "Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking in Client Care "and is a clear presentation of patient care, with its consistent format and narrative text, boxes, tables, graphics, and photographs. This book is built around functional health patterns, a framework used by many schools of nursing. With a focus on developing decision-making skills, this book encourages readers to think critically, thoughtfully, and realistically through an abundance of case studies and examples. Because nursing care is organized around prioritized diagnoses with interventions and rationales, readers quickly understand the rationale of each action. An excellent reference for surgical nurses and others in the field of medicine and nursing.

In this role, she serves as a consultant to new and existing nursing education programs in the state. Her work with the Board also involves evaluating and proposing policies and regulations for nursing practice and education.

Ms. Burke entered nursing with a diploma from Emanuel Hospital School of Nursing in Portland, Oregon, later completing baccalaureate studies at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and a master's degree at University of Portland. She retired as the Director of Health Occupations at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon, after helping initiate and develop the nursing program, as well as expand it to a distant site using on-line instruction.

Ms. Burke strongly values the nursing profession and the importance of providing a strong education in the art and science of nursing for all students preparing to enter the profession.
