The guide covers all aspects of the test, including basic test-taking skills, how to understand exam questions, multiple exam questions with answers and rationales, and content review of information derived from the AACN exam guide. The authors, who are noted CNL educators and practitioners, cover concepts of horizontal leadership, interdisciplinary communication and collaboration skills, and health care advocacy. They address care management, team coordination, illness/disease management, health promotion and disease prevention management, and advanced clinical assessment.

The book also encompasses health care finance, economics, policy, informatics, ethics, and evidence-based practice as it is covered on the test. The material is presented in easily digestible sections that correspond to specific areas of the AACN exam guide. Multiple vignettes and unfolding case studies reinforce concepts. Also included is a sample test .
