Medicine for nurses

Monty Toohey

Lesley Williams, Parish nurse

Reason you chose this book

It has helped me understand medical disorders. I have been nursing for 55 years now and I can still remember certain chapters... even pages about diabetes.


It was available, well explained and had diagrams and photos that I still remember, not sure if it is still in print but many nurses will know of it. I trained in 1961 and saved up for this book and still have it. The history of nursing society will have this for reflections about the profession and the roles of nurses then.
