Overview

This must-have workbook helps students learn the prioritization and delegation skills needed to survive nursing school, pass the NCLEX-RN® examination, and make the transition to practice in today's healthcare environment. Consisting of three parts plus an answer key, this resource provides numerous opportunities for students to review cases and answer questions similar to those they will see on the NCLEX-RN examination - including questions in alternate-item formats . Part 1, written by delegation expert Ruth Hansten, is an introduction that provides a practical review of clinical delegation skills and serves as a framework for the exercises that follow. Part 2 consists cases of patients who have relatively straightforward health problems followed by NCLEX examination-style questions focusing on prioritization, delegation, and assignment. Part 3 consists of complex, unfolding cases involving patients who have multiple health conditions, as well as complex patient assignments.

• An introduction by prioritization and delegation expert Ruth Hansten explains the importance of developing sound clinical skills and judgment in the areas of prioritization, delegation, and assignment.
• NCLEX-style questions help students develop fundamental skills in prioritization, delegation, and assignment and become familiar with the NCLEX examination format.
• Questions in Parts 2 and 3 are organized by body system and by complexity, respectively, to allow for easy use with any medical-surgical nursing text.
• Both sections of exercises give students essential hands-on practice in prioritizing (deciding what to do first), delegating (giving specific tasks to assistive personnel and supervising satisfactory completion of those tasks), and assignment (giving responsibility for the overall care of particular patients to appropriate personnel).
• The questions in Part 3 are more complex than those in Part 2, allowing students to master core concepts using unambiguous cases before applying this knowledge to patients with more complicated, multidimensional case presentations.
• Flexible organization allows the workbook to be used with any Elsevier medical-surgical nursing text.
• The answer key provides rationales for correct as well as incorrect answers, reinforcing the concepts presented in each unit.
• Questions follow NCLEX style, and about 10% represent the new alternate-item question format.
• The workbook is three-hole punched and perforated for convenience.

    Good book for NCLEX preparation

    This is a good book for students getting ready to take NCLEX (and nursing students in general). Has numerous questions related to prioritization of nursing care (this will be useful in preparing for NCLEX!).

    SUPERB

    A friend recommended this book to me as this book really helped her pass her NCLEX-RN and it was also true for me. I purchased this book 2 weeks before my exam and I read it a week before my scheduled exam. This book is really amazing as it reflects the real-life scenarios of what nursing in real life is all about. It has a step-by-step approach of different procedures and it would really teach you how to delegate, prioritize and assign tasks as if you are really like doing your actual duty. At the later part of the book, you would find case studies which are very useful in testing your knowledge on different areas of nursing. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, esp. to those who are planning to take the NCLEX.

    Outstanding

    I tribute this book to my passing of the NCLEX. It was informative, trained me for a new way of thinking 'the NCLEX WAY'
