Illustrated Study Guide for the NCLEX-RN Exam, 6th edition, covers the key nursing concepts and content areas found on the latest NCLEX-RN licensure examination. A concise outline format summarizes essential nursing content, enhanced by multiple illustrations, including many of the authors' popular mnemonic cartoons. The easy, colorful design includes a special Alert! feature that highlights frequently tested nursing concepts, and Nursing Priority boxes that identify priorities of care. The introductory chapter reviews the latest NCLEX test plan and new alternate item format questions, while separate chapters cover pharmacology and nursing management. The remaining chapters are organized by lifespan, basic nursing concepts, client populations, and body systems, for easy location of specific content. Chapter appendixes summarize related medications, diagnostic tests, and nursing procedures. NCLEX examination style review questions close every chapter, and a companion CD-ROM with over 1,500 questions (including alternate item formats) allows users to customize practice exams, and review answers and rationales.
