Churchill Livingstone's Dictionary of Nursing, 19th Edition
This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It provides in-depth coverage of a variety of topics. An exciting new website makes the book more portable, yet providing access to a massive amount of material. The A-Z entries and appendices have been completely updated and many new words/terms have been included. Entries have been carefully edited and illustrations selected to give a true nursing focus, and photographs have been included for the first time.
'This useful resource for nursing students includes access to a free supporting Evolve website with more than 7,500 entries. The site contains in-depth information about a selection of dictionary entries, nursing abbreviations and a spellchecker. A website icon alongside a main dictionary entry alerts the reader to additional material on the site. This innovation means that the dictionary is portable, yet provides access to a wide range of information'
