The Nurse's Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology Glossary
An A-Z quick reference with over 1900 essential terms explained

First Edition

May 2019 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Designed with speed and simplicity in mind, this pocket-sized glossary provides an A-Z reference guide to over 1,900 key biological terms used in nursing.

Key Features:

1.     Prepare for practice – Clear definitions of commonly used terminology

2.     Learn the language – Phonics-based guidance on pronunciation

3.     Deepen your knowledge – Breaks down complex terms to aid understanding

Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Dissecting words to aid understanding
Chapter 3: Alphabetic glossary
Chapter 4: Notes

All in all, this is a really good read, it’s really helpful and useful to student nurses and qualified nurses out there that struggle with terminology and how to pronounce things. This is a life-saver. It’s quite small as well so it will fit into a small backpack or handbag, if you’re taking it to uni, onto wards or out in the community.

A great book for which I have written a review in and also am adopting on a brand new nursing curriculum as part of the essential reading list
