Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As an RN I consult the Royal Marsden all the time, I couldn't be without a copy. It is so straightforward and helpful, and absolutely excellent for dipping into to refresh knowledge on different procedures. I like this 'student' version too, the multiple choice questions are good to test your knowledge, student or not! Definitely a 5 star book, however I docked a star because based on the book description, I expected this edition to be "compact and portable"...well it is bulky and weighs a ton so I think that is inaccurate :) Great stuff though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hefty, but portable clinical 'bible' 7 May 2011
By LJD VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A very comprehensive study-tool and reference 'bible', packed with colour photographs demonstrating procedures, for example the stages of handwashing.

I shall upload some photographs, to give you a flavour - please click on 'user images', above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 1 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is essential and I say that from 22 years as a qualified nurse.

Most if not all NHS trusts base their policies around this book so if you do it this way you'll not get into too much trouble!
It's difficult to argue you're wrong when you quote this book as your source and most importantly you'll not go too far wrong in giving quality research based treatment to your patients.

Most things are covered. Online further content is available. Layout is simple and to the point.

Every nurse should have a copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every health student, surely..? 1 May 2011
By LittleReader VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Easy to read and fully comprehensive with colour coded sections, this has proven invaluable to my recent studies. Though Ive been qualified almost 12 yrs, this manual is an excellent way to keep updated in all areas of practice and I really wish Id come across it as a student - highly recommended...

5.0 out of 5 stars Royal Marsden Hospital, how it should be done. 5 May 2011
By Mr. B. W. Haynes VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a thick book, over a thousand pages filled with no nonsense procedures. As a rather older nurse working in the private sector I found that it served as a refresher particularly when unsure of some newer procedures. If only a tome of this sort had been available all those years ago when I trained! I can vouch for the value of this book, the Students Edition is particularly detailed and I think the best edition of this title. I am sure this copy will become a well thumbed and treasured addition to my nursing library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! 30 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just started my first year at university and this was on their reading list. After reading the amazon reviews I have to agree this is perfect for my studies. Other students also advised to buy it as it will be with me forever! Easy to understand and very detailed. Quite wordy and there a pictures which is great. Be warned this is like a bible, in the sense it is just under 2'' thick and heavy, it will be staying at home rather than me carting it everywhere. Apart from that perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 29 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my granddaughter, who is in her first year of training to be a nurse. She was advised by her tutor to get this book and she is already finding it invaluable. It will also be a great reference book, not only throughout her training, but when she is qualified.
