A must-have for nursing school. Very helpful when creating careplans. Previous version has almost the same info.
LOVE this particular care plan book. It lays everything out so well, with separate areas for diagnoses, indexes that are well laid-out, and rationales that are succinct yet thorough.. It also organizes the information in a rational manner, grouping diseases and/or symptoms so they make sense.

Seriously, I've gone through other care plan books, and THIS is the ONE edition I will never give up.
LOVE IT!!! This book basically writes your case studies and care plans for you. The information is incredibly comprehensive and clear. Every possible diagnosis, cause, intervention and rationale are laid out perfectly. You can't go wrong with this book.
I use this book quite often, especially the first part of it where all of the conditions are listed with potential diagnoses for each. Very helpful.
