1 Review
The new edition of this successful textbook covers the needs of the pre-registration nursing student, serving as a study guide and a foundation text. The learning objectives of each chapter are clearly stated and questions and activities make this an interactive text. Self test exercises at the end of each module encourage active study rather than passive reading. Emphasis is placed on the increase in importance of community care and the social and cultural aspects of nursing. Anyone studying nursing will find this well-structured text reliable and helpful with its coverage of tried and tested topics.
