5.0 out of 5 stars Set INCLUDES Clinical Companion and CD January 12, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Since there is no description for the product listed by Amazon, nor a picture, I thought it would be useful to note that the Clinical Companion for Fundamentals of Nursing is included in the package. I purchased this item separately for $25, not expecting for it to be included in this package. So if you are needing both, this set is perfect for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not come with multimedia dvd September 4, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered this thinking I was getting the DVD that was listed in the description. It is actually a CD not a DVD. I was looking for the multi media package that came with the DVD and was misled by this listing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginning nursing book February 7, 2012
We did not have a choice regarding books when taking nursing classes, but this is one of them that I wouldn't have minded choosing. The layout is very structured, which is good when you just start nursing and have no idea what and how much information you will need to know. Now that I have started to practice and am still new to nursing, I have gone back and begun to reread this book. It is interesting how much stuff I missed the first time through!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unecessary common sense July 1, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In one of my nursing classes, we studied this like the bible and it sucked. Very dry and lots of unecessary information. Buy it if its required, but I doubt it will provide you with much extra knowledge if its not.
