The book was new and i received it in about four days so i would recomend the seller. Very responsible.
Don't count on BN for your books unless you have plenty of time to wait for them. I've been waiting days to receive this book expedited and it still hasn't even left their warehouse!
This book is very user friendly for students that are studying Psychiatric Nursing; very well organized. I recommend getting the care planning manual if the textbook is required for class because it is the perfect book to carry with you while on the clinical unit.
Very helpful and informative regarding Psychiatric care for patients. Great examples of Therapeutic care.
great for the beginner!! everything is made clear and simple. highly recommended for the nursing student first starting out in a psych class.
It would be nice to write a review but when B & N says its in stock and my order hasn't shipped for 10 days its hard. Perhaps if I look elsewhere find the book, read it, then Ill write a review. I'm sure it is a very good book.
