useful booklet for quick reference
Perfect pocket size for our Nursing students
Very useful book and a great reference source for nursing students who are just starting out on their clinical skills training.
This is a very handy source of information. The contents are well organized and topics are easy to find. The procedures are carefully chosen and are the most commonly used. The students reported that they find the book useful.
I was not impressed by the lay out and it has limited application for the classroom- it's a good pocket book for students but will not feature on reading lists.
Excellent resource for students embarking on the degree
