9780721603742: Real World Nursing Survival Guide: Critical Care and Emergency Nursing, 1e (Saunders Nursing Survival Guide)

The latest title in the unique Real World Nursing Survival Guide series, this fun and engaging book prepares readers to manage all of the common health care problems they'll see in critical care, trauma, or emergency settings. Its lighthearted, cartoon-filled approach guides readers through each body system, maintaining a focus on current practice standards throughout. Each chapter organizes material on disorders from the most immediate and life-threatening conditions to less emergent critical care situations.

  • A unique presentation of content narrows the gap between the knowledge that students garners from their nursing school education and the wisdom students needs to survive in the real world.
  • More than 150 NCLEX-style questions are included throughout the book, so students can test their knowledge and review those concepts they find difficult in each chapter.
  • Material is presented using adult learning principles and various active-learning strategies to engage nursing students of all ages, backgrounds, and learning styles.
  • A consistent chapter format using the headings ― What it is, What you need to know, What you do, and Do you understand? ― breaks down information into small units and reinforces an effective thinking process.
  • Special icons for Lifespan Considerations, Cultural Implications, Web Links, Cautions, Monitoring and Initial Treatment help students quickly identify special content in the chapter.
  • Memory-reinforcing mnemonic devices and a variety of interactive activities ― including fill-in the blank, matching, word jumbles, true/false, and crossword puzzles ― promote student learning. Answers are included at the bottom of the page.
  • Prioritized content is reflected, identified, and reviewed by nursing students.
  • Clinical terms and shorthand expressions are highlighted in parentheses and in a second color after the layperson's explanation to expose students to the terminology they will hear in the hospital setting.
  • Boxed Take Home Points provide the benefit of years of nursing experience that students can use to prepare for their clinical rotation.
  • A full-color insert illustrates concepts and principles of critical care and emergency nursing, including various complications.
  • Original cartoon-character illustrations and a cartoon lioness walk students through difficult subjects with a lighthearted approach to engage students in learning.
Bridging the gap between nursing school and practice in the "real world," The Real World Nursing Survival Guide series consists of readable and student-friendly study aids that break down essential information into a manageable format to help students learn and retain key information. Unique features includes a consistent use of standard headings, special icons for important information, boxed take home points, and a special cartoon character that walks the student through difficult content with a light-hearted approach.
