This book is amazing and provides a clear understanding of the concepts of health assessment for the nurse. I use this book everyday in my own practice and often refer back to the normal and abnormal findings. It is used for both the student and nurse. The visual pictures are very helpful and provides advanced practice techniques too for the nurse practitioners. Look for similar items by category.

A clear, conversational writing style makes learning easier.A two-column format distinguishes normal findings from abnormal findings, and uses color, step-by-step photos to clarify examination techniques and expected findings.Over 1,000 full-color illustrations present anatomy and physiology, examination techniques, and abnormal findings.Developmental considerations help in caring for patients across the lifespan with age-specific assessment techniques for infants, children, adolescents, pregnant females, and older adults.Abnormal findings tables include over 300 pathology photos to help in recognizing, sorting, and describing abnormalities.Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle boxes enable patient teaching and health promotion while performing the health assessment.An emphasis on cultural competencies reflects today's care considerations for an increasingly diverse patient population.Documentation examples show how to record assessment findings in the patient's chart, using the SOAP format.Summary checklists provide a quick review of examination steps.Spanish-language translations on the inside back cover highlight important phrases for better communication during the physical examination.A companion Evolve website helps you review key content offering case studies with critical thinking questions, printable health promotion handouts, a head-to-toe examination video, heart and lung sounds, audio chapter summaries, and more. NEW evidence-based guidelines reflect a focus on conducting the most effective, qualitative exams.NEW Substance Use Assessment chapter addresses this increasingly critical aspect of holistic patient assessments.100 new photos of step-by-step examination techniques include all-new exam panoramas for key systems. 100 new abnormal findings photos provide instant visual cues for findings that are unexpected or that require referral for follow-up care.Expanded chapter on assessment of the hospitalized adult provides a focused assessment of the patient in the hospital setting.New content on obesity provides current information on this growing health problem.
I have used many editions of this book, I think I started out with 2nd edition, because I taught Physical/Health Assessment for many years. When I first started teaching it 2 or 3 semesters a year I had the opportunity to review many and this was always my favorite- especially when you started offering the online materials. Even if everything did not apply (I taught at ASN, BSN levels and had my nurse practitioner students use it for their basic review text. However many texts were available for review from 1990 to 2008, I reviewed them. In 2013 I simply went to Amazon and asked for Jarvis's newest book available on this topic
When I review a text for course use I pick out the chapters of things I know very well and read them word by word, then peruse the other chapters, though after teaching 29 years I am quite familiar. I was also a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Students did not complain about readability and pictures and so on, just how big the assignments were. The whole book is way to much for one course (that's why NP students need a good book for review). And I was pleased with the pain assessment chapter and especially slides. As much as it "pains" me to see in research literature, medical and nursing students are woefully undereducated on pain management' I have stayed somewhat current in pain management by belonging to the American Society for Pain Management Nursing ( and a few other groups like the American Pain Society). A close friend with similar nursing background decided in 1980 to select the most serious problem of our whole profession. We chose undertreatment of pain. We have slowed down somewhat . We plan to continue until we develop dementia or die.

I will stop now, As a mostly retired nurse the chance to talk to nursing colleagues is not too common except in the every three month ASPMN meeting. If you are interested we have a website, the St. Louis Chapter of the American Society for Pain Management Nursing. To it's credit the national group has gone from 19 members in the late 1990's to at least five thousand, despite many hurdles posed by the DEA

I retired early to take care of two seriously ill parents but I still teach an occasional Health/PE class at local junior college Although there are not a lot of changes in the actual human body I do love the updates on tips and techniques. Your book was very easy for me to do a self-review. It is so good for all the areas I fought for many years ago, evidenced-based assessment and critical thinking
Sorry, I am writing this very late, I think I reversed a paragraph and I do not know how to correct it in this format.

I absolutely love this book. This is one of my most prized nursing books. I wish I had this in first assessment. It's subjective and objective portions are absolute gold, it really makes you think about how the pt may describe what they are feeling, as well as some helpful tips on how to dig deeper. It covers newborns, Peds, teens, adults. Geriatric and how assessments would vary in each by system.
Information presented in the textbook is not much different from the 5th edition, sold the 6th edition and kept my 5th edition, a book that I used when I was an undergrad student.
I rented this text previously through my university and used it for a class. This text was easy to read and apply. After my class was over I returned the text to the bookstore. To rent it was $50.00 and buy it was over $130.00, so it worked best for me at the time. However, I took additional classes and through my clinicals thought how helpful this text would be for reference. So when I saw it used on Amazon for $10.00, I jumped to purchase it. I know there is a new edition of this but I am familiar with this edition. I did look through the new edition and it has similar content just presented differently.
We had a hoorible teacher for the class using this book and the book turned out to have pretty useful information where the instructor failed to teach. Other than that it is a dry read that drags instead of going to the subject, but that is true for most books like this.
This is a great product. I use it all the time - it is very informative and easy to use.

I bought this book as a requirement for my nursing class. I also bought the pocket guide. In all reality I used the pocket guide more than this text. It was wordy, confusing and in the end didn't have all the assessment data I needed, which the pocket guide did have. Would be great for someone who is a big learner from reading text books.
An excellent resource for those of us who are enrolled in a BSN completion program. The information contained in the book, as well as, the availability of the website exercises and resources all help to make the transition back to school somewhat less stressful.
