The Core Curriculum for Ophthalmic Nursing is written by nurses, for nurses and has an easy-to-read bullet format that outlines incidence, etiology, signs and symptoms, complications and the medical management of various ophthalmic disorders. Each chapter contains an optional continuing education test for up to 30 continuing nursing education credits in one publication. The appendix includes nursing care tables that walk the reader through each phase of the nursing process from assessing the patient to implementing appropriate interventions.
