Principles of Science for Nurses (0632057696) cover image


This very basic textbook aims to provide nursing students with the essential bioscience they will need to complete their Common Foundation Programme.

The book will explore the relevant basic scientific principles, apply these principles to clinical situations and then ask review questions. For anyone who has not studied science before this will be an excellent introduction to the key concepts of chemistry, physics and biology, as applied to nursing.
