PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: MEDICAL-SURGICAL NURSING WITH “NURSING REVIEWS & RATIONALES”, 3/e provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today’s “need to know” knowledge for understanding medical-surgical nursing. 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 of this discipline. Fully reflective of the current (2010) NCLEX-RN® Test Plan, it begins by introducing the basics of the medical-surgical nursing process, physical assessment, and common tests. Next, it provides complete chapters on each of these sets of disorders: respiratory, cardiac, peripheral vascular, neurological, renal/urinary, hepatobiliary/pancreatic, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, integumentary, immunologic, cellular, endocrine/metabolic, hematologic, reproductive, and eye/ear. The text concludes with a full chapter on common problems encountered in emergency and critical care nursing, with solutions. It comes with a complete support package, including access to additional questions and the complete eText online, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.
