Great resource March 19, 2011
This is a great smaller textbook for nursing diagnoses. It's clear, concise and fairly easy to find information in. It also provides patient teaching. This resource text has been invaluable during my clinical experience as a student nurse. Include pediatric and geriatric interventions and many more interventions than earlier publications. It is a convenient way to have Nursing Diagnosis information at your fingertips.
