It is increasingly recognised that nursing and midwifery students require a thorough understanding of the structure and function of the human body in order to practice safely and effectively. The third edition of this stimulating and highly successful text is designed to provide comprehensive support for the physiological component of diploma and degree courses for healthcare students at both initial registration and in continuing professional development.Written and edited by respected nurse educators and researchers, this edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the changing needs of nursing students, midwifery students and their teachers. The text has been completely redesigned to promote understanding and critical thinking. All the illustrations appear in full colour and each chapter contains numerous questions.


Reviews of 2nd edition"The entire approach of this excellent book confirms the importance of a 'bionursing' view of the relationship between the life sciences and the practice of nursing." - Nursing Times "An invaluable guide to the application of physiology in nursing practice." - Journal of Advanced Nursing "This is an excellent upgrade to a well-known text. The book's primary audience remains the nursing student training in the UK. However, Physiology for Nursing Practice will also appeal to trained nurses needing to refresh their knowledge of the subject." Ian Chisholm-Bunter; Nursing Standard; vol.20
