Top Selected Products and Reviews
- "Good for confusing concepts" - By SaraI don't study in these terms. This was a good book to study using case studies, though, if you were going to do it. It was helpful in thinking through how different processes can effect people in different ways. It was really helpful for some of the more complex concepts but I didn't start using it until near the end of nursing school because my teacher made me. I wish I had used it more. It is one of those things that you don't use every time for everything but as a supplement to things that really confuse you. I would recommend it, though.
- "Just what I needed..." - By buffiI just started teaching a Pathophysiology course & was looking for case studies for the students. These case studies are current, concise, & reasonable for the students; each one provides enough information to get them started without 'leading' the student. I watch the students as their critical thinking skills start to spark...You know, the 'Ahhh, now I get it!" expression that comes over their faces. Well worth the investment. Thanks~~~
- "Case Studies in Nursing Ethics" - By amypI bought this book for my nursing ethics course. I haven't read much more than the case studies because it's not required and I don't have the time. While it isn't the most exciting book to read, the case studies give great examples of moral and ethical problems and the text follows up with further thinking on each case study.
