Understanding Anatomy and Physiology in Nursing
Adult Nursing | Life sciences | Nursing
Covering all the key aspects of anatomy and physiology that nursing students need to know, this book condenses vast amounts of scientific information into short, concise, and easily accessible chapters. From an overview of cells, blood, and the major organ systems, through to the key developmental stages, genetics and ageing, this book introduces all the vital anatomy and physiology information that aspiring nurses will need to learn. Throughout the book, case studies link core principles of anatomy and physiology to realistic scenarios commonly encountered by nurses in clinical practice, helping students apply this knowledge to their everyday working life.
• Mapped to the new NMC standards of proficiency for registered nurses (2018)
• Case studies, activities and other learning features help students translate the theory to practice
• Provides revision guidance and strategies for tackling exams and assessments
Very good book. It explains the basics of anatomy and physiology at the right level for Nursing students. However, the fact that it's black and white and text-heavy might not make it as attractive to students. Nevertheless, the mapping of content to the NMC Standards, makes it perfect for lecturers to create a better curriculum for Nursing A&P.
essential read for lecturers to support teaching and clearly set out for students. Good use of activities with in the book.
This is a well written book that uses understandable and legible terms and makes the topic easy to read. It also provides good grounding for further study in anatomy and physiology.
Very well structured and easy read. Clearly explains all body systems with relevant case studies to support reader and assessment tasks. This is also a very good revision guide for students wanting to understand the Anatomy & physiology of human body, images to support each topic was useful. Would recommend this book as essential reading guide.
A good first book for student nurses to familiarise themselves with A & P
Students encouraged to purchase this book to assist with their knowledge for anatomy and physiology both here and on future courses . Written clearly with good terminology ideal for the new student of A&P.
Decision on adoption of the title cannot be provided at this stage. Will consider later on in 2021
A very good text for the anatomy and physiology aspect of a number of nursing schemes. Whilst suitably comprehensive where it needs to be, this book is equally not overly daunting to digest. Presents all of the essentials of A&P in a very easy-to-understand way and contains exactly what you would hope of such a text.
This is an excellent book. Easy to understand and I like the case studies to consolidate learning.
Really usefully book which looks at A & P in a way which links to practice helping the students to understand the concepts and principles well. the use of case studies help the students to link to practice, and the table in the front helps students mappings to the NMC standards.
This book is pitched at the right level for the students that i teach and i really like the fact that it has been mapped to the NMC standards.
