I love this book. It has everything in one spot. It goes into great detail. It covers Biomedical AND psychosocial. It covers children through the elderly. Best of all, it has those darned Rationales and references that are such a nightmare to look up. This book took me from a student who did mediocre care plans to one whose "nursing process papers" are always used as the "example" the class should follow. It is worth every single penny and then some. Unless you love care plans/the nursing diagnosis, or whatever your school calls it, do yourself a favor and get this book.

just got this a couple of days ago, last ed. rated highly by others in my class (RN program) and since Im on summer break, I waited for this one. Those of us who've been up till midnight the night before clinicals will like that this one is organized, it gives what you need in a logical place. The other books I've used have you hunt back and forth for defining char. and outcomes etc. (see page ### see diag. ##.## etc) but this one has everything right there, you can look up by Sx, by medical Dx or alphabetically by NANDA; try to get it early enough so you have time to look at the first chapter, it explains where and how to find what you need quickly, worth the $40 in time saved alone.

This book helped me raise my clinical grade to an "A." I was struggling with care plans, and it cleared everything up for me. I bought every nursing diagnosis/care plan book I could find, and now keep this one on the top of the stack--it is well worth the money. For those of you who are buying it because it is required--consider yourselves lucky that you are starting out with the best.

the best Nursing dx book I've owned and I have a large number of them. I just keep buying them b/c they've been lacking. This book is awesome! Don't waste your money on all the rest.

This book was required for my school of nursing and I'm really glad I spent the money on it. It has not only basic interventions and rationales for nursing care, but also teaching, medication, lab, pediatric and geriatric interventions with the rationales. I have literally 10 other nursing care plan books, but this is the one most of my interventions come from.

This book was so helpful when I had to write care plans for patients. It is so easy to use and takes you step-by-step through the nursing process. I use this book instead of the book required by my school.

Great care planning book, the easiest to use out of all of them. All you do is look up the medical diagnosis in the front and it lists all the nursing diagnoses, then it provides all the care plans with rationales for the interventions. You can also register online at Elsevier and create the care plans online, so you can just copy and paste into word.

The book I purchase was in very good condition and arrived very timely as promised by seller. The book itself it part of my mursing school textbooks and far more inexpensive online than in a college bookstore. Even if your school dosen't require this book all nursing students should have one as it it the guidelines to treating and assessing patients.
