Hallmark Features

 

Each chapter offers the following elements to guide students during review and study:

  • Chapter Objectives describe what students will be able to know or do after learning the material covered in the chapter.
  • Review at a Glance, a glossary of key terms used in the chapter, provides definitions up front to help students stay focused and make the best use of their study time.
  • Each chapter starts with a Pretest,a 10-question quiz of the material covered in the chapter to help students discover the areas where they need the most review.
  • Practice to Pass questions are open-ended to help stimulate critical thinking and reinforce mastery of the chapter information.
  • NCLEX Alert icons identify concepts that are more likely to be on the NCLEX-RN® examination.
  • A Case Study at the end of each chapter provides an opportunity for students to apply their critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills and “put it all together.” Each Case Study describes a true-to-life client case situation and asks open-ended questions about how a nurse would provide care for that client and/or family.
  • A Posttest at the end of the chapter provides a 10-question quiz with feedback about mastery of the chapter material following review and study.
  • All Pretest and Posttest questions contain comprehensive rationales for correct and incorrect answers, and they are coded according to cognitive level of difficulty and to the NCLEX-RN® Test Plan categories of Client Need and Integrated Process.
