Thorough reference book
"I could have googled a lot of the terms instead of buying this, but I really like having a physical copy of reference materials. This book has done a good job of defining medical terms. It is better than Google because you don''t pull up 14 different things with similar names--ONLY the medical definition."
--R. M. Cook


Great resource for nursing students!
"The Bible for Nurses creating care plans! Has everything you will need; disease definition, symptoms, NANDA''s, interventions. A must-have for students!"
--Dora Duran


Required textbook for first-year nursing school, but it will serve me well for many years
