Much Improved Fifth Edition.
on March 10, 2006
Any book of thys type that has gone through five editions has to have something going for it, and This book has many. Perhaps the most important is the writing style which is as light and casual as it can be considering the subject. The goal is, of course, to prepare the student for a career. The book combined instructional material with case histories that illustrate how a particular case, situation, or patient was successfully handled. Each chapter starts with a page entitles 'A Nurse Speaks.' Here practicing nurses relate some of their history
In addition to the text, the book is supplied with a CD-ROM oriented to preparation for the NCLEX examination. A companion web site for the book provides yet more information to help the student.
This is one of the standard books in the field, and it's easy to see why. This book convey's the information the student needs to know in a style that makes it as easy as possible.
