Comments from customers about the book:

Seen on Amazon:

This is the best nursing reference book I own! I find this book well organized, comprehensive, easy to understand and interesting to read. Most of the other books I have been using to study read like boring textbooks, however this book is outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend this book to any nurse who is interested in cardiovascular nursing, regardless of whether or not you are working towards a certification.


From MB in Alabama:

Out of all the critical care textbooks I own, both nursing and medical, your book is very effective at making practical the clinical knowledge base needed to take excellent care of our patients. I recommend these two volumes to all my critical care nurse colleagues as a means of elevating their nursing practice. 

As far as material, I cannot say enough good about it! I’ve enjoyed the time reading the material. I especially like the links to clinical practice, which help bridge the gap from knowledge to clinical practice. These 2 volumes will serve me well into advanced practice nursing. I cannot thank you enough!
