Gain valuable experience applying your knowledge and critical thinking skills to real-world scenarios! Case Studies in LPN/LVN Nursing features 50 case studies that cover all clinical areas of practice: fundamental skills, medical-surgical adult health nursing, pediatric, maternity, mental health, geriatric nursing, and leadership management. Patient scenarios help you learn how to apply nursing knowledge to nursing practice by promoting the development of critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills. Cases integrate content on assessment findings, diagnostic/laboratory tests, pharmacology, and nutrition to encourage you to think critically about all aspects of patient care, including the physical and psychosocial needs of the patient, communication, collaboration with the health care team, teaching wellness and health promotion, and integration of cultural competence. Cases unfold as care is provided and a variety of multiple-choice, select-all-that-apply, prioritization, and short-answer questions challenge you to formulate and select relevant and/or potential decisions. The case studies are separated by clinical area, allowing you to use this worktext throughout your nursing program. Questions for the Next-Generation NCLEX® (NGN) prepare you for the biggest change to the NCLEX-PN® test plan to date. Answer keys are available to instructors on our accompanying Evolve website.
