    "Das einzige Nachschlagewerk zum Thema professionelle Pflege. Umfassend und leicht verständlich [...]."
    Literatur-Report online 7-10/2007

    "[Die Autorinnen] haben das weitreichende Thema ››Pflege‹‹ in Praxis und Organisation auf dem aktuellen Stand strukturiert und auf den Punkt gebracht. ... Ein Pflege Pschyrembel neben dem altbekannten Klinischen Wörterbuch ist ein Zeichen, dass der Pflegeberuf auf dem richtigen Weg ist. Er sollte nicht nur als Ergänzung, sondern als eigenständiges Nachschlagewerk unseres Berufsstandes gebraucht werden."
    Vesna Delevic in: Evangelischer Diakonieverein 4/2013
