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! :)

I needed this book for school. I am in the nursing program and needed this book for my fundamentals class. The book is very clear and makes the class a little easier to understand. It provides step by step instructions for certain assessments that you will use. I would recommend this book to anyone in the medical field.

Good book to teach Freshman nursing students because it lays good basic foundation of nursing care. I found the many case studies and review questions at end of chapters useful in stimulating critical thinking.
Recommend this book to other Freshmen nursing students and their educators.

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.

I'm in the process of actually reading this text--which, as a long-time student, is saying something. The way the chapters are set up so far is relatively straightforward, the writing style is easy to read and doesn't seem to stretch out the information (read: fluff), and this text surprisingly seems like it will be worth the money.

Four stars pending update when further along in my program.

This book was required for nursing school. Not thrilled with it. Some of the information seems to be pretty outdated or judgmental. There are some grammatical errors. It's pretty difficult to read. There's a ton of text on each page. Some of the info graphics are nice.

Bought this for my girlfriend's nursing class. She says it is the exact book she needed and for significantly less than the book store or any other site. Book also came in amazing condition! highly recommend.
