Just had orientation for my program and they announced we'll be using Pearson's Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning
. They're excited about it and the way it's structured.
Reading the Amazon
reviews is pretty terrifying. I'm not a bad student, can self-teach very well, and can use non-required texts to supplement required ones. But has anyone used this particular text? It was mentioned that all of North Carolina has switched over to it and I'm really curious about it and awful textbook experiences in general.
I kind of feel like a nursing career a textbook does not make but... yikes!
.com/gp/aw/d/0781793831 the "specialty" books (med-surg, psych, etc) are ebooks included in the bundle. Naturally they're all Pearson books. A friend sent me a med-surg text, but if anyone has suggestions for solid fundamentals of nursing texts let me know!
) looks promising and more of a beginning nursing book (the med-surg one I have is meant to build on fundamentals it seems). But more suggestions are welcome.
