“As a nursing instructor, the Textbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing: Practical Application of Nursing Process at the Bedside is one book that I would highly recommend be a required textbook for any nursing student. I appreciate that the textbook is distinctly formatted to present diagnostic and laboratory studies while also including case studies. The textbook walks students through understanding why a study is being performed, how it is done, and explains the clinical significance in relation to a given patient situation all while using the nursing process. Absolutely love it!”

- Cindy Middaugh, Instructor at El Paso Community College
