      • UPDATED case studies provide opportunities to apply your knowledge and develop your analytical skills.
      • Checklists for use in RN-to-BSN completion programs provide a refresher for seasoned nurses returning to the classroom.

      • Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle boxes enable patient teaching and health promotion while performing the health assessment, and now address the key concept of prevention.
