From the Back Cover The end is just the beginning...

One look at Medical-Surgical Nursing Care and one will see the most comprehensive chapter-ending review section on the market. Critical thinking care maps for the student to fill out, key terms by topic, key points, media links, cross-references for further study, test-taking tips, and NCLEX-style practice exam questions combine at the end of each chapter to ensure the most complete chapter review.
A second look will reveal that the chapter-ending review section is only the beginning of the elements and features worked throughout this book to ensure comprehension and success. Each chapter opens with learning outcomes that follow the flow of the chapter, plus a caring tip that connects the student with real-life experience in the nursing field. Throughout each chapter Clinical Alerts, case studies, documentation samples, pharmacology tables and boxes for special population issues or discharge teaching highlight the essential information. Collaborative care and nursing care are provided in sequence, so the student will be able to work well as a member of the health care team. Nursing Process is stressed. Content of the book is streamlined but thorough, allowing the student's focus to remain on the need-to-know information and essential skills.
Course completion with this text will be just the beginning of success.
