 The new, revised edition of this extremely popular all-in-one text for the practical/vocational nursing curriculum has everything to meet the needs of students and instructors.  The text, which is part ofLippincott’s Pathways for LPN/LVN Education Series, contains information on all the critical areas in the curriculum—Anatomy & Physiology, Fundamentals, Skills, Adult Health, Growth and Development, Mental Health, Maternity and Pediatrics, and Geriatric Considerations.  Based heavily on the NCLEX-PN framework, this highly-visual new edition features short chapters with easily digestible content including review questions, features, and alerts for reinforcement of important content.  The text is accompanied by a robust student Workbook and a comprehensive,turn-keyancillary program to help teachers teach and students learn!  A special feature of the new edition is the inclusion of NCLEX-PN Alerts, which highlight critical NCLEX-relevant content in each key area, and a voluminous Test Generator that more than doubles the number of questions in the previous edition.
