This is a well written but elementary book intended for nurses. With some assistance from instructors, nurses with a high school education ought to be able to handle the material. However, it will be essentially book knowledge, since no laboratory work or demonstrations arc indicated. For nurses who enter a training school with two or more years of college work, a more comprehensive textbook of physiology is indicated.
