Format: Paperback
This book was required for a class I took. I found the book long-winded. What was said in 20 pages could have been said in 5.

Also, the authors state their own personal opinion as fact in multiple places. This was distracting.

If you are required to buy the book, then you probably aren't reading reviews because a bad review won't change whether or not you buy the book. If you are considering this book simply as a reference quick to community nursing, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

This book is a GREAT public health nursing resource, it lays down a strong foundation for community nursing. I get the most use out of the clinical application sections, they provide modern situations and are informative. You can access the supplemental student resources online through Evolve. Just follow the textbook's instructions. The resources are helpful for added understanding. I purchased it through Amazon as I do most of my textbooks. The delivery was right on schedule as usual.

I have had a few nursing textbooks that put me to sleep. This one was the opposite. While no textbook is a "page-turner", this one was engaging from the beginning. It details where we've been, where we are, and where we are going in the field of community nursing. Each chapter covers its topic thoroughly. Although I doubt I will ever open some of my textbooks again, I plan on keeping this one for reference.

Very good book, interesting read, and pays respectful and truthful hommage to the nursing founders. I am proud to be part of this profession and hope to serve the public as these bright women did.

I had to purchase this book for class. I did not like this book. I feel there is good information, but the book did not "flow" well. The book jumped from one section to another.

Fantastic "practice" book to complement the textbook of same name. Very helpful as a study guide, and would highly recommend.

Exact book for the course. Easy to understand but I thought there was a lot of opinion stated as well as fact.
