Covering all the key aspects of anatomy and physiology that nursing students need to know, this text is the go to book for aspiring nurses. From an overview of cells, blood and how organ systems work together, through to coverage of each of the major organ systems, all the way to key developmental stages, genetics and ageing, this book distils the vast amounts of anatomy and physiology information that student nurses need to know into short, concise and easily accessible chapters.
