This book will introduce you to the world of nursing more than you ever thought possible. Potter and Perry sure spent some time on this one. It's easy to read, and contains end of chapter review questions of an NCLEX style. Very helpful. Also, if you need to pump some iron, this book will get you into shape. It's quite heavy!

I use this book literally every single day! I love it! I only use two books out of the 15 or so (yes, I'm exaggerating) that they had us order. This one & a book for Pharmacology (Pharmacology & The Nursing Process 6th Ed. Vital Source Page Burst). This book has great illustrations, & definitions for everything! You won't regret your purchase! :)

The book itself is exactly what in wanted and was expecting, however it came with the front cover scratchef up and has no access code. If i have to purchase the $66 for the access code, it would have been cheaper to just buy from the school bookstore.

This book has essentially been my Bible through my first year in Nursing school and I see myself using this as a reference for the rest of my Nursing career.

Book shipped quickly! Glad I purchased in amazon and not at my school's bookstore, saved me a bunch of money. I hate the way this text book is written though. It's very hard to sit and read all my assignments.

This book repeats itself a lot... very redundant. The information is not presented in an interesting way.I would not recommend it for a Fundamentals course.

Before I started nursing school, a friend of mine was awesome enough to give me some of her nursing books, one of which was "Fundamentals of Nursing: The Art and Science of Nursing" by Taylor. This book was such a visually vibrant and fascinating introduction to Nursing it got me truly excited to start my education! I read about 15 chapters before I got my book list from my school and I was disappointed to find out I was using "Fundamentals of Nursing" by Potter and Perry. I read bad reviews from the previous editions. I had to tell myself not to compare the two texts by saying, "Okay, you're going to become an RN one day, you have to throw that BIAS out the window!" Within the first few chapters I knew that this was going to be one of the most difficult, UNINSPIRING, and truly bland reads I would have to get through. The first chapter alone were pages filled with text, I felt I was reading for the bar exam.

What I appreciate with Taylor's Fundamental book was the ability to involve the student through clinical scenarios, how an RN (or student) might approach these issues through several methods of the nursing process, and short stories throughout titled, "Through the eyes of the student". These cases captured me as a reader, it allowed me think critically which was a huge plus since I started reading actively! What I don't understand with Potter/Perry are the NCLEX style questions after each chapter. They simply give you the answer with no rationale (something Taylor offers). I'm sorry that in the end I compared the two, but it was hard not to.

Potter and Perry have done a wonderful job with research and it shows throughout the text, but as far as an introduction into nursing, this book fall's short of the dynamic and fascinating career Nursing truly is. There's no way to avoid it, this was my assigned textbook.
