3-0 out of 5 stars Not that great
This book seems to be helpful if you are searching for really specific diagnoses, but not for just a broad range. For example, risk for impaired skin integrity is due to chemotherapy. It is very specific in each category, and makes it impossible to use for a regular patient care plan. This was partly my fault because i did not read into it a lot before purchasing (bought in the store). I am hoping that I can return it and get a general care plan book, that is not so specific in the related to and evidenced by parts. This one would probably come in handy when I am in specialties phase this summer, however I am in an accelerated LPN program, and our specialties are short in length, so it is a waste of money. I do agree with a previous review that the book is not very well organized either.

1-0 out of 5 stars absolutely awful
This book is a required book at my nursing school, otherwise I would be selling it now in the used book section. I have wasted sooo much time searching for things in this book. The organization is pitiful. It is organized by system, then disease process, so all of the nursing diagnosis are specifically related to disease(good luck if the disease isn't in the book). I would not recommend this book to anyone, I have since spent lots of time and additional money trying to find a good care plan book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
I reviewed 4 different Nursing care plan books; overall, this one is the best and clearest.I would highly recommend this one over others.It is the only one that clearly articulates, NUMERICALLY, what a nursing goal should aim to achieve so you can actually MEASURE if your interventions were successful. Oh..and it really is easy to read. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better, but it will do
For those who have never utilized the Incrediby Easy series, these books are great for review or to help make concepts less confusing, but are still *no replacement* for your textbook! :)
3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting
I am a nursing student and this book didn't help that much. It is very to the point and doesn't explain much. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you are just starting Med-Surg. I am in Med-Surg II and I don't feel that this book is very helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book does not come with a CD as another review states
I ordered this book using 1-click because I read the review about how great the CD was. After I clicked I realized that this book does not have a CD. It's okay, it is much easier to read than my assigned textbook (Smeltzer and Beare's Textbook of Medical Surgical Nursing)and I needed something to supplement so I will keep it. The CD, which I also bought, is nice to have. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Better Choices Available
This author has some good insights contained in the Author's Notes at the beginning of each nursing diagnosis.In her Notes she explains the differences between diagnoses that seem almost identical.But you can get the same insights in her smaller, more concise Handbook of Nursing Diagnosis, without the expense and inconvenience of the full-blown, padded-out version.Also, the smaller Handbook should not be your first care planning book.Instead, it's a valuable supplement that will help refine your understanding of the topic.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste-O-Money
Bought this book as it was 'required' for nursing courses.I suspect this is the only reason this book is ever even purchased, because it IS NOT HELPFUL!Never seen such a convoluted resource, this was the WORST.IMO, Carpenito is obviously riding on her laurels from past publications.If you are a beginning nursing student that is attempting to make heads or tails of care planning, save yourself the agony now.THUMBS DOWN!

2-0 out of 5 stars Thereis a better choice!
I bought this book thinking it would be a bigger and better version of the spiral bound Handbook of Nursing Diagnosis.It really isn't!I feel that this book is hard to navigate through and never use it!I paid 45ish dollars for this book and think it was a HUGE WASTE OF MONEY.I do, on the other hand, LOVE the SPIRAL BOUND HANDBOOK OF NURSING DIAGNOSIS by the same author Carpenito-Moyet.I have discussed this topic with many of my classmates who also have these books and eveyone of my classmates have agreed. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Well-Written Text for Beginners
I'm taking my first biostatistics class with W. Daniel's Biostatistics text.It's a good book, but I think it's for more advanced statistics students.Munro's text is more suitable for beginners who have never taken any statistics class.It explains the basic but important statistical concepts in plain English without using much mathematics.Very well written and easy to understand.The exercises at the end of each chapter are well picked. They are short, yet helpful for reviewing the important concepts that have just been covered.

5-0 out of 5 stars Statistical Methods for Health Care Research
A very well-written and helpful statistics book. It was required reading for a course in Quantitative Nursing Research last semester. Overall, the concepts such as t-tests, correlation and regression were explained in relatively simple terms. Examples with answers were found at the end of each chapter and the book came with a data disk. This was the most user-friendly statistics book that I have used so far!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I had a chance to review this book. I think the authors can make us much better understand, particularly one who is about to learn the concept of statistics. You can apply this book with the SPSS program in order to interpret the results. Anyway, I still like the calculation parts which areremoved in this edition (3rd) compared with the last one. I think they canhelp someone, who is very interested in statistics, to understand betterbefore go ahead to use the computer. It's a great book for the beginner. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars High Acuity Nursing
This book has been very helpful to our new nurses who seem overwhelmed when they first get out of school.Self-paced modules help them incoorporate their knowledge with the types of patients they take care of.I have used this book for seasoned nurses too.They like the validation they get from being able to pre- and post-test.
1-0 out of 5 stars this book is horrible
I am a senior nursing student and I am appalled at this book. Our instructor loves it and has been using it. I brought to her attention that in the pediatric module, some of the pretest answers are WRONG!!! I know they are wrong- or I would not be a senior nursing student!!!! Out of all the majors and careers and textbooks that need to give accurate information- ACUTE CARE NURSING IS THE ONE!!!!! This is sooo extremely important! I am very disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent training resource for new graduates
Filled with self paced modules applicable to the critical care, emergency room, and medical-surical setting, High Acuity Nursing is an excellent clinical resource to supplement orientation & training programs of new graduate nurses.Organized by body system, it integrates A&P, clinical nursing applications, and critical thinking all in one.I used it with my new graduates when orienting them to the IMCU, ED, and med-surg units.They found the information helpful in tying in the clinical content they were learning during orientation and the practical application of it.They rated the self learning modules highly in the evaluations.Internal transfers into the ICU have also found it to be helpful when orienting to that new setting. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars great book for OB nursing class
I used this book last semester for OB nursing class, it helped me understand basic concepts andput together nursing care plan greatly. It's very concise and well written.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
The new edition of the AWHONN Core Curriculum for Maternal Newborn Nursing is excellent.It allows the staff on the units to have the latest information on clinical practice, guidelines for care, and patienteducation. The only thing more would be to have an appendix of commonOB/Newborn procedures and protocols/guidelines and much of the annualhospital activities revolving around the hospital manuals could be greatlyeased. We have tabbed the Clinical Practice segments for easy reference onthe units.

This is a wonderful book.Fluid & Electrolytes is a very complex subject and this book was able to simplify and reiterate important topics. The book went over essential topics such as electrolyte imbalances, acid-base imbalances, fluid shifts and made it interesting to learn all at the same time.I highly recommend this book to nursing students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive and user friendly
I recently started classes to earn a degree in medical transcription. My instructor for Medical Transcription 1 recommended this dictionary and told us it's required for a class I'll be taking next semester. So I figured I would invest the money now. I also had a reference test today and wanted to get my own medical dictionary so I wouldn't have to fight everyone else for the ones in the class room. I also noticed that most of the dictionaries in the class room are out of date. I wanted something that was up to date. I found this dictionary to be incredible helpful and user friendly. There is so much information here. It is easily accessable and well organized. For the test, the instructor read the word or term orally and then we had to look up the real spelling and definition. There were twelve terms on the test and I found 10 very quickly and easily in this dictionary. I am glad I decided to purchase this dictionary. I looked at a couple of other medical dictionaries and I was the most impressed with this one.
5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!!
This book contains so much needed information for anyone who wants to know anything about the human body. It has a world of knowledge, starting from the most simple words to the most complexed diseases. I am a nursing student and I found it to be extremely helpful, easy to read and use. Its a wonderful book all around. I love it and you will too. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I have updated to the new edition
I bought the first edition of this book after transfering from a multisystem ICU to a neuro-surgical ICU. I have found it to be a very Nurse friendly book. I have several resources for neuro, some are very complex.Joanne Hickey has put together information on a very cerebral topic that is for Nurses from novice to expert.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love neuroscience-get this book!
The Clinical Practice of Neurological and Neurosurgical Nursing is an excellent overview of the care and management of the neuroscience patient. It's perspective is largely that of neurosurgery/ trauma nursing and is focused predominately on the acute phases of care. This text is arranged topically by disease/ injury process with the introductory chapters oriented towards concerns in neuroscience nursing. The depth and breadth of the material is suitable to meet my needs in the neuro-intensive care unit of the Level I trauma center in which I work. It provides a ready and easy to use reference with solid explantions of disease process, complications, treatment, pharmacology, and nursing considerations. I recommend this text to new nurses in neuroscience at my hospital regularly and I am currently using it to prepare for certification in neuroscience nursing. ... Read more

I have studied forensic nursing through Kaplan University for the last 9 months. I found this textbook to be a wonderful and thorough resource. Covers all the necessary material.

4-0 out of 5 stars A knowlegable compilation
They call Virginia Lynch the godmother of forensic nursing. Her text is packed with information about the many specialties available to the forensic nurse. Ms. Lynch had multiple authors contribute their "best" to this book. Linda Ledray writes about sexual assault, the others write about their own special practice and specialized knowledge in the field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally!-- a nursing guide with one foot in the real world
With an adopted 10-month old at home, my first pregnancy turned out to be twins. I loved my 40+ hour management level job and did not want to leave. I did not think nursing was an option, and quite frankly wasn't that interested in it anyway. This book changed my mind. It is down-to-earth and gave me the grounding I needed to think creatively and yet realistically about what I needed and what my children needed from me. I ended up nursing my twins almost exclusively for 2.5 years. Best decision I've ever made. I highly recommend this book and purchase it for every pregnant mom I know who inquires about nursing and managing a challenging work-filled life.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Guidelines
This book I feel was very helpful to me even though my son was born early and breastfeeding attempts were unsuccessful. The book gives great insight to nursing successfully as well as working successfully while nursing, and I will pass this book to all of my friends that are pregnant and returning to work mothers in the future. I think first time breastfeeding mothers returning to work are very frightened and even intimidated by the thought and really need someone to help lay a timetable down (of course as a baseline, everyones life is a bit different so all will need to make some adjustments). this book really helped to give that needed structure and to let you know it is possible. The only thing I disliked about this book was the amount of talk about co-sleeping and some other opinions that get fluffed around, at times it feels a tid bit pushy, but if you can get past those frequent comments and hint arounds then its no problem. HIGHLY reccomend this book to returning to work mothers. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I would not suggest this book to anyone...
Please don't waste your money on this text.I had the misfortune of having to use this text to teach certification reviews for the July 06 exam. Luckily all of the students passed but I would attribute it more to their prior pharmacy knowledge and the additional information I gave them from the APhA texts than this book.The typos were unacceptable!!! I realize mistakes will get missed on occasion but how can a text claim 3/32 = 1/8 on the front page of a chapter?I was primarily teaching the math section and thought this book did a terrible job of explaining things.If math is the area you need to focus on do yourself a favor and by the Complete Math Review by APhA instead.This book was written strictly like a textbook which doesn't promote the practice most students need.The APhA text was written more like a work book which I really enjoyed as did my students (I also used it when I just wanted to briefly look over things before taking the exam in 2003).The work book format of APhA makes it a lot easier for students to skip over sections they have already mastered by providing frequent practice problems you can check yourself on.The pharmacology section in the Delmar text was pathetic as well.The information was out of date and incorrect (Nexium is a capsule not a tablet!!!)The top 200 medications list in this book was organized poorly also. I used numerous sections of APhA to supplement the Delmar text and the students loved the way the APhA material was presented in comparison.Basically my conclusion would be that if you want a text with tons of typos and way more information in textbook format than you need on the exam...use Delmar.If you just want a quick refresher (or even a crash course if Math if it isn't your strong point) that just presents you with what you need to know please use the APhA texts (Complete Math Review and Complete Review).

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent overall prep for PTCE
I purchased this book a couple of months ago to prepare for the certification exam--which I took today.A couple of thoughts now that I've been through the experience:
4-0 out of 5 stars Delmar's Pharmacy Technician Certfication Review
I HAD ANOTHER CERTIFICATION BOOK WHICH HAD A LOT OF WRONG ANSWERS & TYPO'S.THIS BOOK EXPLAINS EVERYTHING VERY SIMPLY & IN A LANGUAGE THAT IS EASLILY UNDERSTOOD.IT FOCUSES ON WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IN ALL AREAS & NOT A BUNCH OF INFORMATION THAT IS TRULY UNNECESSARY.ALSO IT COVER ENOUGH MATH HOPEFULLY TO GET YOU TO PAST THE TEST.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE STUDYING FOR THE PTCB EXAM. ...
