Description: Prioritization, Delegation, & Assignment: Practice Exercises for Medical-Surgical Nursing is a concise, case-based workbook that helps students master the patient management skills demanded by nursing practice today and tested in increasing percentages on the NCLEX Examination. The workbook consists of three parts and an Answer Key. Part 1 is an Introduction by delegation expert Ruth Hansten, RN, MBA, PhD, FACHE, that provides a practical review of clinical delegation skills and serves as a framework for the exercises that follow. Part 2 is organized by body system and consists of approximately 25 NCLEX Examinationstyle questions per chapter, focusing on prioritization, delegation, and assignment in patients with relatively straightforward health problems. Part 3 consists of complex, unfolding cases, each involving multiple health conditions, as well as complex patient assignments. Questions in both sections include approximately 10% NCLEX alternate item format. Helps students develop skills in prioritization, delegation, and assignment by completing case-based, NCLEX-style questions. Questions are divided into two parts, the first organized by body system and the second organized by complexity. Organization and complexity allow for easy use with any medical-surgical nursing text. Part 1, an Introduction by prioritization and delegation expert Ruth Hansten, RN, MBA, PhD, FACHE, provides a practical overview of clinical delegation skills, offers strategies for effective decision making and supervision, and serves as a framework for the exercises that follow. Part 2 focuses on patients and patient assignments involving relatively straightforward health problems. Part 3 focuses on complex, unfolding cases, each involving multiple health conditions, as well as complex patient assignments. Both exercise sections give students hands-on practice in prioritizing (deciding what to do first), delegating (giving specific tasks to assistive personnel and supervising them for satisfactory completion), and assignment (giving responsibility for overall care of particular patients to appropriate personnel). An Answer Key includes a rationale for both correct and incorrect answers. Questions are in NCLEX Examination format, including 10% alternate item format.
