As a supporter of concept maps, I have read many books on the subject, dating back to the early 1990s. This is the most comprehensive and easy one to use, hands down. My favorite features are the online resources and the extensive discussion of how to use concept maps beyond the traditional uses. The instructor resources are high quality and a definite value. - Reviewer Feedback

Introduction to Concept Mapping in Nursing provides the foundation for what a concept map is and how to create a map that applies theory to practice. This excellent resource addresses how students will think about applying nursing theory as it relates to concept mapping. This book is unique because it focuses on a broad application of concept mapping, and ties concept mapping closely to critical thinking skills. Furthermore, this book will prepare nursing students to learn how to map out care plans for patients as they talk with patients.
