"This book has an easy to read format and has many illustrative pictures that elaborate on the topics that it talks about. There is a lot of information about past nursing situations and case studies that really gives you a in depth look at what to do in certain situations as a future nurse. The book is relatively affordable compared to some of the other books and even has links to online tools that help supplement your understanding of the subject matter. One of the downsides is that the book is very heavy and wouldn't recommend bringing it everywhere. Other than that, this book is basically a dictionary for nursing and has all the information needed for a future nurse to learn."
