The foundation and art of Nursing. Detailing patient advocacy and basic care for nursing students. Clinical concepts and the process of learning techniques for nursing students are emphasized. Elements of Nutrition are also involved in the quest to provide the ultimate health for individuals and community. These books are highly effective for the foundations of Nursing.read more
The weight of this book is "tremendous"; although it holds enormous amount of information. Carrying it around is simply difficult at times. Possibly having this book provided on a "tablet" form, would make a valuable contribution.
