Assigned Reading

Below I have created a week by week reading guide for your review. The readings from Morton are assigned readings, however some content may be review. The readings from Brunner & Suddarth are supportive in case there are content areas you need more in depth review on from prior courses. It may be helpful with new content such as dysrhythmias, ventilators, and disaster preparedness to refer to B & S in addition to the Morton text reading for more in depth understanding, but not required. In addition, I specified in the table below which chapters you are responsible for on each exam. Happy reading!
