Continuing the success of their previous books, authors Linda Williams and Paula Hopper deliver another trend-setting edition that explores and teaches the "why" of medical/surgical nursing. Complex issues are presented in a clear and easy-to-digest way that encourages LPN students to think critically while learning real world nursing care. The new third edition now packs a powerful virtual punch-providing a student CD-ROM. An accompanying workbook is also available that includes a robust activity pack to help build strong study habits in a fun and visual way. A comprehensive and groundbreaking work, "Understanding Medical Surgical Nursing, 3rd edition" sets the new standard for a core med/surg textbook.
