Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful text for students in the entry level of nursing. However, many skills listed in the text are missing information or have conflicting information from the hardcover text also published by Delmar. I have used this text for 2 entry level courses and both courses have noted missing, incomplete or inaccurate data that will need to be updated, corrected and/or assimilated to correspond with the Fundamentals text that is designed as a corresponding text with this book.

If you have any past knowledge of any of the techniques in this book, this book is wordy but descriptive. The pocket guide seems to be working better for a number of my classmates plus it doesn't weigh 20lbs. This book has all the information you will ever need on how to do everything from turn a patient to putting in IVs. If you are using it for advanced procedures then definately buy this tome - if you need it for easier things than the pocket guide will do!

This book was on my required text list. I opened it about 5 times total during 6 months. The pictures are terrible! Bad, bad lighting in all of them and are way too old for our times. I wish I hadn't wasted my money seeing as how the instructors had their own way of wanting the skills to be performed. If not required, do not waste your money.

Format: Paperback
This tome of timely tips is in truth a fairly comprehensive textbook/clinical lab manual with detailed skills descriptions, including photos and illustrations. The anecdotal patient stories are a bit much (truth is always stranger than fiction, particularly the lady drowning in the instant quicksand of a punctured therapeutic sand bed...) but on the whole, this is a comprehensive clinical manual in a very readable format. Designed for the ADN 2-year, 3-year RN, or CNA/RN programs.
