Study Guide for Medical-Surgical Nursing 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

This study guide was a great supplement for my Nursing of the Adult tests. It is a good way to review and test your knowledge after studying. It follows along well with the actual Medical-Surgical Nursing textbook. I think it was only like $26, definitely worth the money, especially if your professor pulls questions directly from it :)

This has been a great study tool for all the nursing tests. i would recomend that if your school uses the med surge book that you pick this study guide up too. Its especially helpfull because it provides the rationale for each answer. It has really helped prepare me for all my exams.
