Medical-Surgical Nursing 3.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

This book is very heavy, you are charged more for shipping. As with the other review, you need a bag on wheels to transport this book. Alot of info is covered, some of the equipment pictured is outdated but you get the general idea. The Study guide that accompanies this book is a must have to help outline the chapters.

This is a massive book that glosses over some important topics at times. It is ridiculously heavy so if it's required reading for you, get a roll around backpack to save your back. There is nothing about the book that really says 'easy to understand'. Some of the charts break info down but for the most part it seems to be the longest most boring book I have purchased for class so far and I only use it when I have to. One of its better features is the breakdown of nursing diagnoses for care for different health problems. Useful with care maps. If you are like me and need things broken down a little more I recommend supplemental books to help you grasp the concepts and care map books as well.

the authors are both dedicated nurses which is what makes this med-surg text so easy to read. numerous pictures illustrate the conditions in the book.
