Main description

The painless way for nurses to learn laboratory and diagnostic testing!

Nursing Laboratory & Diagnostic Tests Demystified offers a clear, step-by-step blueprint to understanding the laboratory and diagnostic tests most often performed by nurses. You will learn what each test is, why it is ordered, how it is performed, how patients should prepare, how long it takes to get the results, how to interpret the results, and what the nursing implications are. Topics are presented in a logical learn-as-you-go sequence, building on what you've learned, and you'll be able to test your knowledge with chapter-ending questions and a final exam.
