This novel resource for course content review of paediatric nursing and NCLEX-RN preparation features a potent learning technique-the use of unfolding case studies-to enhance critical thinking skills and enable students to think like a practicing nurse. Covering both basic and advanced nursing concepts of caring for children and families, this format embeds required content into compelling, real-life scenarios that evolve over time. 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.
All content areas required for NCLEX-RN success are interwoven in an enjoyable format that dispels the drudgery of straightforward memorization. A variety of NCLEX-style questions are used throughout the book to familiarize students with the exam format and to help them assess their own learning. The book includes engaging eResources for enriched learning experiences. It will also be of value to faculty as a make-up guide for students who miss clinical hours, and as a reference for scenarios with standardized patients or role-play situations.
