Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen Lent Becker, MS, CRNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This is a systems-based comprehensive review that will assist the advanced practice nurse to prepare for the adult nurse practitioner (ANP) certification exam. This is a welcome update to the previous edition in 1999.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the advanced practice nurse the opportunity to prepare for the ANP certification exam. Chapter content and test questions closely reflect the blueprints for the certification exam. The importance of test-taking strategies are emphasized as well as content on growth and development, health promotion, research, ethics and issues and trends. These objectives and content are important for preparation for the certification exam.
Audience: The book is written for the student nurse practitioner as well as the nurse practitioner who wishes to be recertified. It may also be considered as a test bank for faculty in nurse practitioner programs. The book is appropriately written for its audience and the authors are nurse practitioner educators and practitioners who are experts in their respective fields.
Features: The book is organized using a systems approach. An introductory chapter covers test-taking skills, growth and development, and health promotion followed by multiple chapters on each system. The book concludes with chapters on the research process, issues and trends, and legal and ethical issues. Test questions are all multiple choice and reflect current practice standards. Each chapter ends with a section on pharmacology. Answers and a rationale section that provides an in-depth explanation for each answer follow each chapter.
Assessment: This is a welcome addition to the multitude of certification review books. It is well organized, reflects current practice guidelines, and provides thought-provoking test questions that should enhance learning. The test questions and their corresponding answers with rationale should prepare the advance practice nurse for the certification exam.
