"Very useful wee book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A handy reference book that is relatively (very relatively) easy to carry with you. You won't put it in your pocket or purse but it is small enough to keep with you most of the time. It is loaded with all of the really useful information you might need, specially if you're a nursing student. It doesn't take up a lot of space on your desk so you can keep it handy for those inevitable times that you come across a word or term you need to look up. Of course Google is handy when you're at home but being able to just grab this wee book and look up what ‘that’ word means is just so handy that I pick up this book first most of the time. And you can't beat the price!


The sixth edition of this best-selling and trusted dictionary has been fully updated and revised to take account of recent developments in nursing practice and related fields. Updates cover the fields of general nursing, statistics, common scales and indexes, religion and spirituality, and commonly used abbreviations. Fully revised, this dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of the ever-expanding vocabulary of the nursing professions. In addition to specifically nursing terms, there are many entries in the fields of medicine, anatomy, physiology, psychiatry, nutrition, and pharmacology (including new drugs recently introduced into medical practice). Over 10,000 clear and concise entries, all written by medical and nursing specialists, cover the theory and practice of nursing. 100 helpful illustrations and 15 appendices covering nutritional requirements, reference values for biochemical and haematological data, interpretation of body mass index, and much more, make this an invaluable reference tool for all nursing students and professionals. It is also small enough to be portable and bound in durable flexicovers.
