Most useful textbook I've ever bought! It provides clear yet detailed explanations of just about any disease you can think of, and gives some extra information about things like animal bites and stings and how to treat them. For each illness, there is a definition, a list of nursing implications, and a list of treatments provided. Super huge and heavy, but definitely worth the money.

This text is poorly written and aimed at the academic, not under grad students. One must have a good grasp of medical terminology and Latin. Nothing is put in simple terms, for example when referring to vegetarian option the language used is "palatable meat analogue products"(2nd Ed, p. 1019,para 2). Something so ordinary as a food is clouded in unnecessary obtuse language. This only gets worse when it comes to the medical sections. The comment from my instructor was he felt even his RN's completing their bachelor's degree in their 4th year would struggle with this text. This is not a teaching tool, at over 7 cm thick, it is best used as a door stop or some sort of press.

We have this as a required textbook for our Acute care course and this is a well organized and easy to understand resource for our assignments and readings.

This book was extremely helpful in my medical/surgical rotations and theory courses. I was bombarded with several different diseases and usually 10 - 30 drugs per patient on my medical rotation. This book helps you understand and will also give you a refresher from class when doing clinical prep! Remember several diseases have co-morbidity or can mimic similar lab results, I found this book very helpful when running into this situation. Buy, Buy, Buy!

one has to love this text because it has everything it and it is well organized. it also has nursing diagnoses for a lot of the conditions and really becomes your best friend as a nursing student for papers, assignments, prep for clinical and for your own knowledge. The only challenge is the size and weight of this text, I wish it was divided into three or something but its a text you will want to keep on your shelf for reference.
