Medical Surgical Nursing
I bought this book because it was required for a couple of my nursing courses. One of my instructors actually reviews books on fundamentals and reviewed this one. She is a very intelligent person and she chose the book for her class so it comes highly recommended. It has great descriptions and explanations of just about anything that you can think of related to nursing.
A Nursing Guide
This item is a required textbook for the school that I am currently attending. It is an excellent book, user friendly and has lots of great information for anyone who is interested in learning different types of health issues. It comes with a CD rom which is definitely useful for testing purposes. Definitely something I would suggest to anyone and everyone who is interested in learning about the Nursing career in the health field.
I bought Medical-Surgical Nursing book about one month ago. I'm happy with it. I have bought it because it is requirement for my school. I can not say if it is better than some others, but one can find a lot of useful information about ilnesses, pathophisiology, symptoms, prognosis, and therapy.
Medical- Surgical Nursing book
I bought this book for my daughter who is going through Nursing school at Grambling University. Seh was told that she needed the book right away and we couldn't find one available anywhere except on e-bay, I opted to buy it right away and she received the book just in time. She is very happy with the book and says it will help her tremendously.
Med/Surg Text with Comp Support
Very well written, informative, concise and offers online addtional information. Comes with a computer disc with patient scenerios for the nurse-to-be to work at and understand the standard of care for each situation. Has some some nursing care plan elements with the online version. Will definately prepare any student nurse for the NCLEX when read and studied.
