great service

this book was exactly what I needed and arrived in a very timely matter. I would order from this seller again

great book

The book is very detailed and sometimes repeats the information which helps to remember stuff. It came fast just as I requested choosing faster shipping. Thank you.


I am very happy with this book. I know students that got the two volumes and they are happy, too. The information in the 7th edition is presented clearly. There are tables for everything...medications, diagnosis, illnesses, etc. Farely easy to read. Can't go wrong with it. I, also, purchased the companion, it is good for looking up things quickly and doing patho. I am now getting the study guide, as are many of my classmates. I have made the investment to do well in nursing school and this book was worth it.

Excellent Medical-Surgical Resource for Nurses

It took me almost two months to deeply appreciate this book. I must admit that I disliked the book initially, much like several of the other reviewers listed here. However, after one of my classmates in our Nursing Refresher Course raved about the book's nursing care plans, I took a deeper look at the material and was thrilled by the comprehensiveness and timeliness of the information presented. For example, the chapter on Alzheimer's disease and dementia contained information about diagnostic tests that is often only found in neurology textbooks intended for physicians. When I worked for a neurologist, the only resources I had for very specific diagnostic studies were the Mayo Clinic's diagnostic studies manual and the physician's neurology textbooks, some of which were several years old. Overall, I believe this book serves as an excellent resource for pathophysiology, diagnostic studies, and nursing care plans. The tables and illustrations are beautiful, user friendly, and highly informative. Each chapter is organized according to the nursing process, which focuses on critical thinking and problem solving. Don't delay in adding this textbook to your nursing library. This textbook is a great resource for nurses working in hospitals, doctors offices, clinics, wound care, patient education, and public health nursing. There is also an excellent section in the chapter on emergency care situations that covers agents of bioterrorism, which is very useful to nurses working in trauma centers and the military.

A practical and well-rounded guidebook for Home Health Care

This book I've subtitled "holding the bag" -- it is basically a text book for nurses, telling them how to deal with the patient after the doctor has left the room. It includes how to live with a diagnosis, a disease, and deal with the side-effects of a cure. It not only provides precise medical information, but includes psychological and 'daily-life' information as well. As it is designed for nurses, the vocabulary is technical, and the illustrations are graphic; if you really want to understand what the doctors just told you, this is the place to go.
