Not worth the money. The information contained within can be found by doing simple searches on CINHAL and locating scholarly articles. Used this for a class and felt that it was not worth the time or money.
Everything professed to be, and more. Highly recommend to anyone considering going into or currently studying to be licensed as a nurse practitioner in any state.
I never thought I would actually like a textbook. But this is a great book. Very easy to read and understand. For the price it gives you priceless information.
Very informative. Great language. Easy to use for the not so legal savi. Great resource. This will likely be a book that I get future updated versions to keep current with my practice.
This is a great resource for practicing Nurse Practitioners and NP students. I have the 3rd and 4th editions and refer to them frequently!
Indispensable guide; no NP should practice without it. All student NP’s need this text as an essential to their practice formation framework; therefore, this text should be in the textbook list of resources used any NP program of study.
Excellent book. Good condition and received quickly. Exactly as the school requires! Thanks I get a better price than the school offers and I don’t have to drive back up to the bookstore.
Although there is information about every states guidelines, it seems confusing and mostly unnecessary at first, however it is key in developing your own mind about how you will practice when you are finished.
