Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Barbara A. Ihrke, RN, MS (Indiana Wesleyan University)
Description: This book includes components of nursing practice as well as focused material for each clinical area (childbearing and women's health, psychiatric/mental health, pediatric nursing, and medical-surgical nursing). IBM and MAC Disks are included in this 15th edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to help nursing students review for licensing examinations in Canada and the United States. A comprehensive examination mimics the NCLEX-RN test plan.
Audience: Although targeted for nursing students preparing to take the NCLEX-RN, this book could be used by nursing faculty to verify completeness of instructional material. The editors are well qualified, and the contributing authors and reviewers are associated with an institute of higher education.
Features: There are questions after each chapter. Rationale for each correct answer and each wrong answer is provided. Each correct answer is further classified as to difficulty, phase of the nursing process, area of client need, and category of concern.
Assessment: This NCLEX-RN review book provides students test questions and answer rationale. Carefully constructed questions are similar to the NCLEX-RN. The computer disk is simple to use and provides the student simulated practice for the computerized examination. Study hints and helps benefit the student. A faculty member could use the book as a supplement for students requiring practice in a particular clinical focus. This is a comprehensive but not unwieldy book, ideal for students preparing for the NCLEX-RN.
