A classic text since it was first published in 1974, the Lippincott Manual for Nursing Practice (LMNP) has provided essential nursing knowledge and up-to-date information on patient care for nearly 40 years. Now in its 10th edition, this full-color text continues to serve as the most comprehensive reference for practicing nurses and nursing students worldwide.
Often referred as the 'Lippincott Manual' or simply the 'Lippincott', the LMNP is widely used as a procedure manual for many healthcare institutions (contains 157 Nursing Procedure Guidelines). It is also widely regarded as the Gold Standard for nursing practice in the classroom.
Organized into five major parts, LMNP presents a comprehensive reference for all types of core nursing care. Part 1: Nursing Process & Practice; Part 2: Medical-Surgical Nursing; Part 3: Maternity & Neonatal Nursing: Part 4: Pediatric Nursing; Part 5: Psychiatric Nursing. Content is evidence-based with supporting articles highlighted in actual entries and procedure guidelines. Official Guidelines that shape practice are incorporated in to the content and include those from the National Institutes of Health, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, American Nurses Association, Joint Commission, AWHONN, and others.
A companion Website includes full text, an image bank, and drug-related NCLEX®-style questions, FDA updates, and new clinical studies.
Description: This book presents important information for nursing practice in an easy to read manner. The various "alerts" are helpful in focusing on additional information, which encourages critical thinking. The last publication of this book was in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to advance nursing knowledge by combining the past with the present. As healthcare finds a renewed interest in past nursing processes, it is the combination of this information with the present, ever growing body of knowledge that allows nursing to continue to grow as a profession. The author's objectives are worthy and easily met by this book.
Audience: Although this book would be an invaluable addition to any library, it appears to be directed at the nursing student. The author presents the book as a reference for all levels of nursing, an assessment with which I agree.
Features: The book is divided into five sections, each of which presents information related to a different area of nursing. The color coded sections allow the reader to easily locate information in their area of interest. The list of sources for further information is a valuable resource. I would like to have seen additional information on transcultural nursing.
Assessment: This book is well written, easy to understand, and well organized. The expertise of all involved in the development of this text is obvious in the material presented. Information is easier to locate in this text than others. This would be an invaluable textbook for various nursing programs. The development of this newer edition is needed as nursing knowledge continues to grow.

The actual text is large enough to read it is the tables and inserts that have very, very small print and will not enlarge, though you can make the main text gigantic. These tables and inserts contain important information, i.e. PICC lines, blood transfusions, additional info not readily available or available at all in the main text. For this reason it gets 2 stars and is lucky to get that. The usefulness of this book is greatly diminished by this problem. The information is too hard to access. $87 down the drain.
