PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: NURSING FUNDAMENTALS WITH "NURSING REVIEWS & RATIONALES", 3/e provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today's "need to know" knowledge for understanding nursing fundamentals. Developed by Mary Ann Hogan, RN and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, this program can be used by current nursing students as a course study aid, for NCLEX-RN® exam preparation, or by practicing nurses seeking comprehensive yet concise review. Fully reflective of the current (2010) NCLEX-RN® Test Plan, it begins with overviews of the nursing process, health assessment, communication, and professional standards; health promotion throughout the life span, skills needed for safe practice. Next, it presents concise chapters on meeting basic human needs, as well as the needs of clients with pain; perioperative clients; and those with altered skin integrity, sensory perception, or mobility. The text concludes with a full chapter on safely administering medications and intravenous fluids. A complete support package includes access to additional questions and the complete eText online, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.
