Incredibly visual May 5, 2011
As a 1st year nursing student taking health [censored]sment, I found this textbook really helpful. It is extremely simplified, but for a beginning practitioner, you can't go wrong with this textbook. It really helps you visualize what you should be doing. As for me, I'm very happy to deal with ecampus. The book looks as if it is new and the price was good. Thanks.
