A must have March 15, 2011
This is a great textbook for looking up information on labs for clinical in nursing school. It includes basic stuff like blood test and urinalysis to more advanced stuff including arthroscopy and mediastinoscopy. This textbook is awesome and great for doing rationales and care plans. It is clear and easy to use. The tests are all relevant in hospital or clinical settings. I strongly recommend it as a perfect reference for nurses and laboratorians alike!
