Straight A's in Pediatric Nursing

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2004 - Medical - 407 pages

Written in a unique, two-column format, this review book can be used either for in-depth study or a quick review. The included CD-ROM contains hundreds of NCLEX-style questions, including the new alternative format questions, along with rationales for correct and incorrect answers. Appealing icons, such as Time-out for teaching, and highlighted text draw attention to passages that alert students to potentially life-threatening situations, improve patient teaching, and promote critical thinking. Dozens of illustrations and flowcharts clarify critical concepts. Appendices include a glossary.
