Med-Surg Success Course Review Applying Critical Thinking to Test Taking

Publisher: F.A. Davis Company

Clearly separating the overwhelming array of medical-surgical nursing content into manageable sections as they are taught and tested, Med-Surg Success provides core medical-surgical concepts with related NCLEX-style questions. Like the NCLEX itself, the questions are presented at the application and analysis level, and address the nursing process, management, prioritizing, and medications: critical thinking and how it relates to test taking is emphasized throughout. Organized by body system and specific diseases, Med-Surg Success builds on the successful skills and strategies that have already helped thousands of students in Fundamentals Success and Test Success . The disorders chapters provide practice questions focused on the disease process and a comprehensive exam that includes the processes covered in the practice questions along with other topics involving the system addressed. Other chapters similarly cover emergency, perioperative, and cultural nursing; alternative health care and end-of-life issues; and the last chapter before the comprehensive final exam includes questions and test-taking hints specific to pharmacology and the administration of medications.
