I purchased this book as I am a newly qualified nurse and I have just started my first job on a neurosurgery ward. I have found the book really useful for quick reference and it provides an overview of most of the things I have come into contact with so far. This is worth the money and I would recommend it to all neuro nurses! Ellie Thomas, Amazon Review I'm a nurse and coming from a medical ward to a neurosurgical ward was extremely difficult. I have looked at a few books which were more complex and mostly aimed at doctors. This book is excellent and covers all the areas that I need for neurosurgical nursing. I would definitely recommend for starting out in any neuro ward. It covers all aspects of neurological disease, injury & rehab. Exactly what I wanted. Amazon Customer Reviews Good concise book for neuroscience nurses. Not too bulky and very easy to understand. Worth buying if you are going to work in a neuroscience ward. Amazon Customer Reviews
