Overview

Based on a philosophy of active learning, this innovative text uses unfolding case studies as a compelling vehicle for learning fundamental nursing content. Unlike 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.

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.

Key Features:

  • Integrates core nursing concepts and content into unfolding case studies
  • Provides engaging test review preparation for course success and NCLEX-RN test success
  • Offers students a refreshing new study option and relief from endless Q&A format offered by other content review books
  • Develops critical thinking skills to help students "think like a nurse"
  • Incorporates all types of NCLEX-style questions into unfolding case studies
