Customer Reviews

Highly recommended April 9, 2011
The book is definitely easier to read and understand than the vast majority of nursing books I have purchased over the years which is a definite plus. They are not trying to impress you with long words that you need a dictionary or thesaurus for. It is also a nice change to have "fun" activities at the end of the chapters to do instead of the usual drudgery. I would recommend this to other nursing students for sure. It is shame that others cannot use this for their example. Highly recommended.
