Great for nursing school, you will use it constantly.“Best nursing lab book I've encountered. Definitely worth the money.”—Online Reviewer
Supports nursing practice and clinical judgment better than any other manual! Written by a laboratory scientist and a nurse educator, this easy-to-read, full-color manual delivers all the information you need to understand how tests work, interpret their results, and provide quality patient care—pre-test, intra-test, and post-test—with a unique focus on clinical judgment.
Tests and procedures are listed in alphabetical order by their complete name for quick reference. The integrated index allows fast searches by abbreviation, synonym, disease/disorder, specimen type, or test classification.
