NCLEX-RN Excel : Test Success Through Unfolding Case Study Review (Paperback)
about this item
The second edition of the NCLEX-RN© review book that "helps you think like a nurse" is fully updated to reflect the 2016 test plan. It includes more complex case studies reflecting the increasing difficulty of the exam, new audio-based questions, e-learning resources incorporated within each case study, and a new chapter on gerontology nursing. This review encompasses the single most effective preparatory tool for success on the exam: the unfolding case study review. This approach promotes interactive learning through case vignettes and simulation environments, and fosters a critical thinking approach to exam success. The unfolding case studies, interspersed with over 700 interactive question-based exercises with answers, closely mimic real-life nursing situations, providing models that help students to problem-solve, actively engage, and use critical thinking techniques when taking the actual test.
The review is presented in an enjoyable format without the drudgery of answering multiple-choice question after question, and memorizing flashcards and medical terminology. It uses many different evaluative forms to help students assess their own learning, including multiple choice questions, multiple multiples, hot spots, matching, true and false, prioritizing, gaming and calculations. The book also includes pharmacology principles within the chapters of each nursing specialty as well as providing a chapter solely dedicated to reviewing pharmacological principles. Beyond its utility as an exam review, this resource is also a unique case study book designed to assist instructors in delivering content in an innovative format.
