Book Description

Based on a philosophy of active learning, this innovative and refreshing study aid is designed to help students learn the fundamentals of maternal-child nursing through unfolding case studies. Nursing content is woven into vivid case vignettes that evolve over time, thus engaging students and helping them develop critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills. The text also serves as a comprehensive workbook for students preparing for the NCLEX-RN®. It is the only maternal-child nursing review text to integrate content with practice and professional responsibilities to foster an engrossing real-world learning experience.

The case vignettes are based on actual cases and incorporate all core content topics (assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation of patient care) for maternal-child nursing and NCLEX-RN® success. The book includes multiple choice, matching, true/false and calculation questions, each related to the unfolding clinical situation. Exercise answers with rationale appear at the end of each chapter. References at the end of the book facilitate self-remediation. Nurse-educators will also find this resource helpful for simulation experiences, classroom cases, group projects, and clinical conferences.

Key Features:

  • Reviews maternal-child nursing core content for course learning and test review prep, as well as for NCLEX-RN® success
  • Uses unfolding, real-life case vignettes to integrate core content with practice and professional responsibilities
  • Covers all types of NCLEX-style questions for greater test familiarity
  • Incorporates online resources for use in clinical settings
  • Develops critical thinking skills to help students "think like a nurse"

5.0 out of 5 stars Maternal Child Nursing Test Review October 30, 2013
By Mary G
Maternal Child Nursing Test Success was a great resource! As a faculty member teaching a clinical review course for undergraduate nursing students, I utilized the unfolding cases as an icebreaker at the beginning of the class.
This book is written in a format that allows students to review clinical content; self check on their knowledge and follow up with electronic resources. I would recommend this to both students and faculty members!

For my first Kindle book for nursing studies it surprised me. This book's format on Kindle was easy to follow and use. I did not like that in some chapters the answers did not match the questions. I had to scroll either forward or backward to find the correct answer to the question. I liked that the references had links to informational web sites online that could be activated while studying the questions and answers. It would have received a higher rating if there had been less errors in the book with answers.
