Nursing Made Incredibly Easy

Nursing made Incredibly Easy! is based on Lippincott Williams & Wilkins’s popular and successful Incredibly Easy! book series for nurses. The emphasis of Nursing made Incredibly Easy! is on breaking down challenging clinical concepts-the ones that are often difficult or confusing to grasp-and presenting them in a refreshingly original, easily understood, and engaging format. The tone is lighthearted, but never simplistic, to make learning fun and effective. Clinical artwork mixed with humorous line drawings illustrate and reinforce key points. Articles are contributed by experienced clinicians, ensuring that content is based on sound clinical principles and hands-on expertise. It is accessible at the link above on the Sitting Bull College campus.

 Alt Health Watch focuses on the many perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated approaches to health care and wellness. It offers libraries full-text articles for more than 180 international, and often peer-reviewed journals and reports.
