Pilot Study Nurse Comments
"Loved all the highlighted “Nursing Priorities” found under each topic. Also, the breadth of material covered – even though so much might seem very basic – they are all excellent refreshers."
"I really enjoyed reading the textbook and feel I have learned a great deal of new information."
"This textbook was very well-organized. It will be kept in my reference library next to the Merck Manual and the PDR. This course is a great resource for those of us who are “specialized” and do not encounter all aspects of med-surg nursing."
"Convenient size and organization of topics. It was not complicated. Answers clear and easy to find."
"Good concise review. Alphabetized format makes it easy to look up a specific topic.
"Good reference and review. Good mix of new information and review of many disease processes. The focus on new/updated information is appreciated."
"The textbook is an excellent reference as it is concise, updated, and relevant information is highlighted for quick reference. The test adequately covers the information that would be important to take note of, as well as allows for essential review and underlines updated/current knowledge.
"I like the easy-to-use A to Z guide and the nursing safety priorities boxes that reinforce critical safety measures (as stated on back of manual). Also, the health considerations were very informative. Book very informative for a “clinical companion. Overall, very good questions. Great overall review of the medical-surgical nursing concepts. Great resource – have a cousin’s daughter who has been a nurse for a year and another cousin’s son who is an ER tech pursuing a nursing career. Will recommend."
