Study Guide for Foundations of Nursing, 7th Edition


Get more out of your textbook with this helpful study tool! Corresponding to the chapters in Cooper and Gosnell’s Foundations of Nursing, 7th Edition, this study guide helps you learn, understand, and apply the fundamentals of LPN/LVN nursing. Hundreds of labeling, matching, and fill-in-the-blank questions are included, each with textbook page references. It also includes critical thinking questions based on clinical scenarios, and multiple-choice and alternate-format questions to help you review for the NCLEX-PN examination.

"Useful for student nurses or return to practice nurses wanting to improve their knowledge." Reviewed by: Helen Reeves, St Giles Walsall Hospice on behalf of Nursing Times, November 2015

      • NEW! An increased emphasis on NCLEX® review prepares you more effectively for the NCLEX-PN® examination, with more NCLEX-style alternate-format type questions and more critical thinking activities.
