Review: Brunner and Suddarth's Textbook of Medical-Surgical Nursing

User Review  - Nicol - Goodreads

Does answer most questions on depth. Great step by step skills tables. Definitely use as a reference, personally I could not read whole chapters through without falling asleep but that is the nature of textbooks like these. Much better than my fundamentals book Potter and Perry. Read full review
