Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Allen Carey, PhD (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing)
Description: This book addresses the needs of licensed practical nurses and practical nursing faculty as they negotiate the transition from the role of LPN to that of registered nurse. The book is divided into three units that cover the transition process; core competencies for professional nursing practice; and role concepts essential for RN practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide interactive student exercises and strategies to socialize the LPN nurse/student into an RN program, taking into consideration the philosophy and curricular framework.
Audience: The book targets students and faculty.
Features: In the section on the transition process, the book addresses lifelong learning, role development and transition, adapting to change, transitions throughout the history of nursing, learning at the ADN level, role transition planning, and testing success for the LPN. Regarding core competencies, it covers practicing within regulatory frameworks, critical thinking, and clinical judgment. The section on role concepts covers providers of care and managers of care. The book is organized well and easy to read.
Assessment: This edition includes an expanded segment on communication and a new chapter on the NCLEX-RN. This is essential reading for the LPN making the transition to RN.
Rachel E. Spector
This new book addresses the personal and professional challenges that the licensed practical/vocational nurses meet when they decide to pursue licensure as a registered nurse (RN). The book address the numerous issues in a forthright, comprehensive manner. The primary purpose of this book is to meet the needs of the licensed practical/vocational nurse who decides to pursue licensure as a registered nurse. It also serves to assist the nursing faculty who are committed to re-socialize and work with the LPN/LVNs as they transition to the RN role. This book is written directly to the LPN/LVN student in an existing RN transition program, and it provides content, exercises, and strategies for the socialization to the more advanced professional role of RN. The credible authors are employed in programs that are concerned with this endeavor. The book correlates content and exercises geared to defining the scope of practice of the RN. All chapters have a consistent organization: learning objectives, key terms, thinking critically sections, text, and exercises. It crafts its content around the assumption that the reader is familiar with the practice of nursing and prepares the reader for more advanced thinking and skills, and it comprehensively covers such topics as role and role transition, the change process, educational plans for transition, nursing theory, critical thinking, and professional nursing roles such as teacher, communicator, manager, research, and stewardship. This book is an excellent tool for faculty and transition students. It is easy to follow, clear, and concise. It identifies the key content that must be taught and discussed in a transition program.

    AWFUL -- don't bother with this one

    Redundant, boring, poorly organized, full of typos and full of just plain conflicting information. Read something in one section and it contradicts itself in another. Teacher can't even defend this one.
