This novel resource for course content review of pediatric nursing and NCLEX-RN preparation features a potent learning technique, the use of unfolding case studies to enhance critical thinking skills and enable students to think like a practicing nurse. Covering both basic and advanced nursing concepts of caring for children and families, this format embeds required content into compelling, real-life scenarios that evolve over time. These unfolding case studies are of particular value because they closely mimic real-life situations in nursing and provide situational mental models that assist students with problem-solving and critical thinking techniques.

All content areas required for NCLEX-RN success are interwoven in an enjoyable format that dispels the drudgery of straightforward memorization. A variety of NCLEX-style questions are used throughout the book to familiarize students with the exam format and to help them assess their own learning. The book includes engaging eResources for enriched learning experiences. It will also be of value to faculty as a make-up guide for students who miss clinical hours, and as a reference for scenarios with standardized patients or role-play situations.

Key Features:

  • Uses unique unfolding case study method that embeds basic and advanced pediatric nursing care concepts
  • Promotes active learning and knowledge retention
  • Helps to foster problem-solving and critical thinking techniques
  • Provides all types of NCLEX-style questions for exam preparation
