Fundamentals of Nursing Test Success
An Unfolding Case Study Review
Based on a philosophy of active learning, this innovative text uses unfolding case studies as a compelling vehicle for learning fundamental nursing content. Different from traditional vignettes, these case studies evolve over time as real-life situations, better enabling students to develop the skills they need to problem solve, actively engage, and use critical thinking techniques in new situations. The unfolding case study method also assists in the development of skills that are important for nursing students about to embark on the NCLEX-RN. The text incorporates all types of NCLEX-style questions into the unfolding case studies to facilitate exam preparation.
As the student works through the unfolding case studies, the vision of practicing as a professional nurse who is actively problem-solving takes shape. This method offers a unique study opportunity that integrates all fundamental concepts and skills application with practice and professional role responsibilities. The patient care content areas that are needed for NCLEX-RN success--safe and effective care, health promotion, physiological and psychological integrity--are interwoven into an engaging format. References at the end of each chapter provide guidance for additional study as needed. Electronic and web resources provide quick access to valuable web-delivered information that will be useful in a clinical setting. eBook versions of this text will take the reader directly to the web resource.
