Plus, an emphasis on priority nursing care with NCLEX® examination-style review questions prepares you for success on the exam.
- NCLEX®-style alternate format questions, including prioritization questions, bolster your readiness for the NCLEX Exam while supporting review of core pharmacology content.
- Reinforcement of key information equips you for success on the NCLEX Examination and for patient safety (a QSEN core competency) in clinical practice.
- Three-part chapter organization separates content into study questions, NCLEX review and application questions, and dosage calculation questions.
- Detailed rationales for all prioritization questions are included in the answer key and encompass explanations for both correct and incorrect responses.
- Prioritization and delegation questions highlighted by special icons equip you to succeed on the NCLEX Exam and in the fast-paced clinical environment.
- Focus on implications of drugs and drug classes for patient care provides practice application of pharmacology content to the clinical setting.
- Application - and analysis-level questions highlighted by special icons help you integrate other nursing knowledge such as developmental considerations, laboratory values, and symptoms of adverse effects.
- Succinct question scenarios eliminate information that is not essential to answering the questions.
- Answer key is now included in the back of the printed study guide.
