Overview

This text provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today’s “need to know” knowledge for effective psychiatric and mental health nursing. Developed and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: MENTAL HEALTH NURSING WITH NURSING REVIEWS & RATIONALES, 3/e fully reflects the current (2010) NCLEX-RN® Test Plan. The text thoroughly covers mental health nursing, including every major diagnostic category. Additional chapters focus on crisis intervention and suicide; family violence and sexual assault, loss and grief; and the psychological adaptation to medical illness. Since mental health questions are unique and distress many students, Chapter 1 presents specific techniques and strategies for answering the NCLEX-RN® exam’s psychosocial integrity questions. A complete support package includes access to additional questions and the complete eText online, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review. Hundreds of practice questions in the book and online at www.nursingreviewsandrationales.com help students measure their readiness for the NCLEX-RN®. In addition, you can access an eText version of this book on this website
