Summary

A useful review tool in preparing for the NCLEX-RN examination, this full-color guide is based on the latest NCLEX-RN test plan - including alternate item formats. In an outline format, it comprehensively reviews all areas of nursing, including maternity, pediatric, medical-surgical, psychiatric, and gerontologic. More than 4,000 practice questions are included in the book/CD-ROM package, along with comprehensive rationales and test-taking strategies. Text and accompanying CD-ROM provide a total of 4,000 practice questions. The CD-ROM includes all 1,800 questions from the book, plus over 2,200 more. Every question includes a correct answer, rationales for all responses, test-taking strategy, level of cognitive ability, integrated process, category of client needs, and reference to a major nursing text. Alternate item format questions, including fill-in-the-blank, multiple-response, and illustration questions, provide exposure to these new formats on the NCLEX-RN exam. A comprehensive exam consists of 265 questions with content areas in the same percentages as the current NCLEX-RN test plan. Pharmacology is emphasized with 13 pharmacology chapters, a medication and intravenous calculation chapter, and a pediatric medication calculation chapter. Pyramid to Success sections provide an overview of each chapter plus a focused guide for review. Pyramid Terms offer a quick review of key content areas. Pyramid Points, located throughout the content outlines, identify content that typically appears on the NCLEX-RN exam. A chapter written by a student who recently passed the NCLEX-RN exam offers perspective on overcoming anxiety. A drop-down calculator is included on CD-ROM, to assist in answering medication questions. CD-ROM allows practice in quiz, study, or exam modes, with questions selected from content area, integrated process, or category of client needs. Now in full color! Addresses issues and areas of difficulty for the foreign-educated nurse in a new, separate chapter. Emphasizes leadership, delegating, and prioritizing client care, reflecting the new focus on the Board exam. Adds leadership and management selection categories to the CD-ROM - important areas on the exam.
