I'm working on my Master's in Nursing. I'm not into theory quite frankly, so I don't use this book for 'reading' I use it for resource and for trying to understand Orem's theory. For all you nursing students like me, that have to take Theory, and have difficulties getting a grasp on the various theories, this book is an excellent and reasonable priced book to help you. I have used the book several times already for presentations and will be keeping it after I get done with my non-thesis project, as a reference book. For you theory loving folks, this book is a must have.

If you struggle to define "what is a nurse", use this book to help you bring a firm foundation to your practice. Ms. Orem (1914-2007) clarified her thoughts on the essentials of Nursing with this book over 6 editions. While there are many who define Nursing from Nightingale, Orem expands, defines and provides a framework of the how, what, where, when and most importantly, why, of the relationship that a modern nurse has with those in their care. Her words are relevant in today's world for they provide some clarity to the term "meaningful use". Likewise for those nurses that struggle with today's understanding of the electronic health record, appendix A will assist you to hone your skills to ask the right questions rather than " just filling in a box". For those who are building today's healthcare, this is the "roots" we need to go back to as a part of the "do over".

For those considering a nursing as a second career - Chapter 15 and appendix B will provide you insight of the Nursing profession.

While a nursing textbook is not for everyone, for those that are caring for an elder, Chapter 9 and appendix C will give coping skills to deal with the day to day challenges you face. Appendix A will help you focus your answers to the any health care provider questions in the rushed environment of the doctors office, urgent care clinic, the emergency department and when a hospital trip looms. Understanding "all those questions they ask you" ahead of time will help you maintain some control in a space where you don't have control. Likewise, this book provides a basic knowledge for when things don't go as expected and gives you the understanding to keep those you care for safe.

Needed a reference book for a paper I had to write. I didn't get much out of it.
