Thoroughly updated and enhanced, the 2nd Edition of this AJN Book-of-the-Year offers an increased emphasis on alternate-item format questions, including fill-in-the-blank, select-all-that-apply, and ordered response.

“The Success books have been an absolute lifeline for me. My “Success” proves it! It doesn’t matter if you get the question right or wrong because you get so much out of the rationale- and then you can apply that information to your next exam, clinical rotation, or the NCLEX” - Corrie Cyre, President, Student Nurses Association, Hillsborough Community College Southshore, Hillsborough, FL

Use this exceptional resource with your current textbook for additional practice questions. It’s the ideal companion to Mary C. Townsend’s psychiatric nursing texts—each title follows the same organization as Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing Success, 2nd Edition for the ideal teaching and learning experience.
