Reviews

Customer Reviews

"In the Case In Points, I love how the author not only presents a realistic life situation, but uses the nursing process to promote critical thinking. Most authors that I have read who use the Nursing Process tend to "give" the information without leading the reader to seek out the information. The author of this text provides questions under the various parts of the Nursing Process that stimulates discussion and thinking."
— Sherri Comfort, RN- Practical Nursing Instructor
"I found the information in each chapter to be the most recent information and recommendations. In fact, some of the recommendations were new to me."
— Judy Kitson, RN, MSN, FNP-BC, LPN LPN Program
