We recently asked instructors what they thought of Essentials of Perioperative Nursing, Fifth Edition by Terri Goodman and Cynthia Spry. Take a look at the wonderful things they had to say:
“This is a great resource for those educating both nursing students as well as RNs new to the perioperative environment.” - Mary Doerner, MSN, RN, CPAN, CAPA, Instructor in Nursing, University of Southern Indiana
“This text is an excellent resource as perioperative nursing contains many facts and regulations. The authors provide excellent information that cuts to the core of the issue. It is logically sequenced. The facts are provided for a quick understanding of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation.” - Linda M. Schultz, PhD, CRRN, School of Nursing, Maryville University
“My students love the review questions at the end of each chapter. I also feel that it is the best textbook for experienced RNs to use in preparation for the certification exam.” - Diana Sullivan, RN MSN CNOR, Indiana University School of Nursing
Essentials of Perioperative Nursing, Fifth Edition is an ideal reference for new perioperative nurses as well as experienced nurses who need a refresher. Featuring objectives, course outlines, testing tools, and competency checklists, it is succinct and easy to use. Completely updated and revised, this new edition includes an introduction to the current clinical environment, elements of a culture of safety, and patient care unique to the ambulatory care setting.
