"This is a comprehensive book that provides essential information for nurses providing care to patients/families/significant others living with this disease. The book is clear and concise, and it can function as a well-designed study guide for nurses seeking certification in the area of HIV/AIDS. This edition is a needed update, but the book also is enhanced with valuable case studies and review questions."

-- Kathleen Woodruff, RN, MS, CRNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing) Doody's Review


Intended for nurses practicing in the specialty area of HIV/AIDS, it provides excellent information for student and novice nurses, as well as experienced nurses.
