I recently visited my grandmother's home, and to my surprise I came across my aunt's old med-surg textbook. She went to nursing school in the early 2000s, but the book (Textbook of Medical-Surgical Nursing, Brunner/Suddarth 5th end) is (for some reason) dated on Amazon as being from 1984. Can an almost 30-year-old book be useful enough to justify lugging back cross-country? I know some things will be outdated, but my grandmother is offering it to me if I'd like it. (Free resources! :3 )
So I just wanted the opinions of current nursing students and nurses. What do you think?
