"...The Gale Encyclopedia of Nursing and Allied Health provides a host of information. The consumer seeking comprehensive basic information will not be disappointed with this resource. This encyclopedia would be appropriate as introductory material for students of nursing and allied health professions, and an excellent resource for the general public or non-medically oriented majors..."
-- Catholic Library World (December 2002)
"...the encyclopedia appears to be the only one of its kind on the market, it is worth looking into for libraries that can afford it. It is also recommended for libraries owning the 2001 first edition, as the online and print resources listed may be outdated or have new additions."
--Library Journal, April 15, 2007
"The second edition of this encyclopedia covers a wide range of subjects related to nursing and the allied health professions...it has a place in nursing collections."
--Booklist, March 15, 2007
"This new edition continues to be a valuable quick reference for the target audience of students in the health sciences. General topics include diseases and disorders, lab tests and procedures, equipment, human biology, the professions, and current health issues. The information is evidenced-based and accurate. The reference is written in a style that is easily accessible to professional students."
--ARBA, March 2007
"Once there was a dearth of thorough, multi-volume medical encyclopedias, no longer. Gale saw the vacuum and moved to fill it. First, there was the well-received Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine, that has recently been published in a second edition. Then there was the Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine. Now there are a series of others including the Gale Encyclopedia of Nursing and Allied Health and the Gale Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders...Academic and public libraries where interest in medical topics is high, as well as medical libraries in need of a good ready reference source, should welcome it on their shelves."
-- Against the Grain (April 2002)
"...Highly recommended for health science, academic, and public libraries."
-- Choice (April 2002)
"...This work will make an excellent, albeit expensive, addition to large libraries and graduate institutions offering appropriate programs."
-- Library Journal (March 2002)
"...aimed at the beginning student, thus it is written in a style between the lay reader and the health care professional. Despite its purpose as a tool for beginners, the seasoned professional will find the reference to be helpful as a quick, accurate check across a comprehensive list of topics...highly recommended for health science libraries."
