about this item

The certified bariatric nurse designation was created by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) to fill the rapidly growing need for nurses specialized in the care of patients undergoing weight loss surgery. This book approaches this  subject area to assist nurses interested in passing the CBN exam. Essential for nurses to pass it, this book can be used as a general resource for those interested in a comprehensive but concise review of the rapidly growing field of bariatric surgery. This would include medical students and residents as well as nutritionists and other allied health professionals.

Dr. Marc Neff is a recognized expert in the field of bariatric surgery with multiple certified bariatric nurses in his program. With his guidance along with the nurses who successfully achieved the CBN designation, the  authors have created a concise, quick hit review of the material required to successfully pass the exam. The format is short chapters followed by 5-10 review questions with in-depth explanations,  with graphics to highlight essential anatomy and procedures. Questions are in multiple choice format to simulate the actual CBN exam.
