This is a unique case study reference for students in the medical surgical nursing core course and a review/workbook for students about to embark on the NCLEX-RN exam. Unlike other reviews, the book embeds required information into compelling, unfolding case studies-studies that evolve over time-in order to promote active learning and facilitate knowledge retention.

These unfolding case studies are of particular value because they closely mimic real-life situations in nursing and provide situational mental models that assist students with problem-solving and critical thinking techniques. The unfolding case study method also assists in the development of skills that are important for NCLEX-RN success in assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation of patient care. All content areas required for NCLEX-RN success-safe and effective care, health promotion, physiological and psychological integrity–are interwoven in an enjoyable format that dispels the drudgery of straightforward memorization. A variety of NCLEX-style question formats are used throughout the book to help students assess their own learning. Additionally, eResource links to additional information are included throughout the book. Key Features:
