This book was required for my nursing school - BSN program. I feel the selection of books my program chose were all very informative, to the point and we used the books for the classes that required them. During nursing school most people do not know where their career will take them, there are so many options the RN has available, so building a strong foundation is essential to success in the field. Nursing books are not written to be entertaining they are for educational purpose only. This book definitely offered education. After you graduate school and chose a path then find the best reference book you can find and carry it with you until the day you retire. I always recommend the additional study guide to a book if one is available.
This is key information that is easy to access from the textbook but I honestly don't think it is worth the money for the amount of time that I have actually used it. Good reference but nothing different than the textbook itself. good care plans and information on assessments that are different than adult in an easy to read format. Good book and good information just didn't use it as much as I had anticipated!

As described. This was required for school.
My school required me to by this, but I shouldn't have wasted my money. It is too wordy and not well organized. WAY too much information! Buy a review book instead, don't waste your time on this book.
required text for Nursing Program courses
Pretty straight forward info. I like how it has charts of the basics. Nice for reviewing. Very helpful for the nursing student.
This manual was really helpful for completing care plans for my peds clinical
