This is a unique case study reference for students in the medical surgical nursing core course and a review/workbook for students about to embark on the NCLEX-RN exam. Unlike other reviews, the book embeds required information into compelling, unfolding case studies, studies that evolve over time, in order to promote active learning and facilitate knowledge retention. These unfolding case studies are of particular value because they closely mimic real-life situations in nursing and provide situational mental models that assist students with problem-solving and critical thinking techniques. The unfolding case study method also assists in the development of skills that are important for NCLEX-RN success in assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation of patient care. All content areas required for NCLEX-RN success, safe and effective care, health promotion, physiological and psychological integrity--are interwoven in an enjoyable format that dispels the drudgery of straightforward memorization. A variety of NCLEX-style question formats are used throughout the book to help students assess their own learning.-- Provided by publisher
