Anna Curren has been writing inspired clinical textbooks for more than 40 years. A nurse and former Associate Professor at California's Long Beach City College, she first wrote this text when the one she was using bore no resemblance to her students' clinical needs. Her graduate degree in instructional design, along with many student and instructor reviews, helped her create what is now the most adopted text on the subject. Also a successful entrepreneur, Ms. Curren founded Wallcur, Inc., a company which produces instructional products, including Injecta-Pad, Practi-Amp, Practi-Insulin Training Pack, and other learning resources. Ms. Curren also wrote the best-selling Dimensional Analysis For Meds, also by Cengage Learning.
Dissapointed: Book is not usefull as hoped to be, missing....
"Like New - A book that may have been handled several times or used slightly but that nevertheless has no defects of note and no signs of wear or aging. A "Like New" book is suitable to give as a gift."
It showed quite a bit of wear but what was most disatisfying was the CD was missing which contains important information and tests. This book is not as usefull as I hoped.
