Often referred as the 'Lippincott Manual' or simply the 'Lippincott', the LMNP is widely used as a procedure manual for many healthcare institutions (contains 150 Nursing Procedure Guidelines).

Expanded and completely updated for its Tenth Edition, this full-color classic reference is the one source every nurse needs for essential information on patient care.
