This thoroughly updated review book provides the information nurses need to achieve certification in medical-surgical nursing from the credentialing arms of the American Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses and the American Nurses Association.
The review covers all topics found on the exam, including disorders by body system, wound care, perioperative nursing, collaborative practice, nursing research, and legal issues. The book reviews signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, medical treatments, nursing assessments, and interventions for scores of problems. Review questions, posttests, and answers with rationales are included.
This edition reflects current NANDA Taxonomy II nursing diagnoses, arranged by nursing domain, and recent CDC infection prevention and control guidelines. The cardiovascular chapter has been updated to reflect the latest information on acute coronary syndrome differential care and American Heart Association guidelines for emergency cardiovascular care. Also, the appendix on oncology care issues and nursing implications has been expanded.
Being a visual learner, this was a perfect review book for me. Pages have great layout, the material is logically organized, and words are used carefully. As a result, the whole review takes less than 400 pages, in a friendly format. At first, I was suspicious about unusual colors of print (green, magenta, etc.), but it turns out to be easy on my eyes, while still very legible. The only drawback to me was the pharmacology info-it is all piled up at the end of the book. It was probably based on exam’s percentage of pharmacology questions, but still feels slightly artificial. Otherwise, great book, and reasonably priced, too!
A great purchase for me. I actually bought a used copy at an excellent price and it was in great condition. I found the book to be a helpful study guide. It covered all the body systems and was easy to read. I passed my certification!!
