This is a great first year nursing textbook. It’s easy to read and it doesn’t bogg you down with unnecessary information. The 2nd volume help provide essential rationale when learning nursing skills such as IM,SUBQ injection, cathether insertion, IV administration, Wound care, etc…
This isn’t the most exciting thing to read, but it breaks down the fundamentals nicely and has some very nice visuals to help as well. I would recommend it for any nursing student.
The two volumes give you the best of both worlds – Volume 1 gives you all the in-depth information and the reasoning behind all of it, and Volume 2 gives you the “how-to” side of things with detailed instructions on how to do almost any type of basic nursing tasks.
Great book! Very clean and packed with information. The 2 volume set came with a hard cover and a paperback and both were perfect for my nursing class!
Guys thank you so much, it comes in the right time and I just started my class today but I need it badly in my second day. So thanks to you, I need it in exact period of time!
Both of these books were in good condition. There was slight highlighting in some sections but it was easily ignored. Shipping was quick as well.
