Core Curriculum for Otorhinolaryngology and Head-Neck Nursing – 3rd Edition

This text is designed to be used by ORL-HN nurses. The book provides an overview of all aspects of nursing practice for the patient with an otolaryngologic problem or abnormality. It provides a foundation of knowledge for generalist and advanced practice nurses working in every ORL-HN practice setting. In addition, it serves as a basic text for students, nurses, administrators and nurse educators.

The newest edition includes updated content, new chapters, and is accessible by electronic download only. That means minimal wait times to receive your electronic copy, easier accessibility, the ability to search for key terms and phrases, and the ability for purchasers to print out as needed.
