Health Promotion in Nursing Practice 1 May 2013
By Leslie D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in a Kindle edition. When I saw the sample of the book that was provided before I purchased it, I thought it would be fine. It was easy to read. However when I purchased this book as a Kindle, the font is too small to see, and the option to adjust or change the font to a larger size is not available for this book. I thought buying the Kindle edition was a good idea, but it was not.

I would not recommend buying this book in the Kindle form.

Great resource! 31 Dec. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This nursing textbook was required for my first class in my MSN program. What a great resource providing multifacet methods in providing health promotion and prevention for multicultural populations within all different age groups! Truly thought provoking information that will be forever used in practice! Thank you for such an intense and informational resource! Despite the hereditary factor, as a community we can continue to implement healthy living through promotion and prevention education to decrease the likelihood of disease to occur.
