Very comprehensive for the university nursing student, but can be a bit dry, the illustrations are informative and the chapters well laid out in a logical manner.
This book was essential reading for my Nursing course. It is well written . It is a big heavy book so not the kind you can carry around but is a great reference book for assignments. It is easy to read, navigate and understand.
Very good book for student nurses learning about med-surg. Great examples of care plans you can find online from this book. Book came to NZ in 5 days
