about

The basic scientific principles underlying health care become clear with this straightforward, engaging and applied book.

The authors of Science in Nursing and Health believe that in order to provide the best patient care, it’s necessary to understand the diverse areas of science that inform it.  Written in a question and answer format, this book will show you how science concepts relate to nursing and health care.  It’s packed with applications and real-life examples that show how relevant a good understanding of science is to your everyday practice.

Mark Foss and Tony Farine both teach at the School of Nursing, University of Nottingham, having worked for many years as nurses in clinical practice.
