A very good text for the anatomy and physiology aspect of a number of nursing schemes. Whilst suitably comprehensive where it needs to be, this book is equally not overly daunting to digest. Presents all of the essentials of A&P in a very easy-to-understand way and contains exactly what you would hope of such a text.

Really usefully book which looks at A & P in a way which links to practice helping the students to understand the concepts and principles well. the use of case studies help the students to link to practice, and the table in the front helps students mappings to the NMC standards.
