5.0 out of 5 stars
very good for first year students in adult nursing, 16 Dec 2011
I wish I had read this book when I was in my first year of nursing studies, because it covers more than the essential, it really helps in developing an understanding of the vital signs and confidence in practice. It is useful for the skills but also for the anatomy and physiology and the references to recent official guidelines. I find this book is a great reference even in my third year and a useful source of information for assignments. Handy format, can be carried in your pocket during placements.
