    Not impressed

    While this book was adequate for my first year, I am really looking for a better book. I wish faculty had not put it on the required list so that I could choose a more comprehensive book for care plans.

    Other care plan books are better than this one.

    The care plans and interventions in this book are very limited and do not apply to a majority of patients.
