FNN BOOK REVIEW


Forensic Nursing. Evidence-Based Principles and Practice by Rose E. Constantino, Patricia A. Crane and Susan E. Young by FA Davis.
A book review by Joyce Foresman-Capuzzi, MSN, RN, CCNS, CEN, CPN, CTRN, CCRN, CPEN, AFN-BC, SANE-A, EMT-P, FAEN
One of the most obvious aspects of this work is its focus on evidence based practice, as this is often difficult to find and incorporate in this burgeoning specialty. The book is divided into four units that make the text easy to navigate. Each chapter includes the same format, which makes for cohesive study and reading. Read the entire review.
