Bates' Nursing Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking provides the foundation for learning assessment, a key nursing function that ensures patients receive optimal care. This text, adapted specifically for nursing students, maintains the trusted and time-perfected assessment techniques and vibrant visuals from the classic Bates'. The book's two-column format delivers assessment information in a comprehensive, straightforward approach. Presenting the normal patient throughout, with common or important problems highlighted, each chapter reflects a strong evidence-based perspective.
