Take your nursing students’ medical-surgical understanding to another level with this trusted learning tool. The Study Guide for deWit’s Medical-Surgical Nursing, 4th Edition offers additional practice to help students master the content they learn in class and succeed on the NCLEX exam. Exercises are divided by difficulty level, requiring students to move from simple recall to applying, analyzing, and synthesizing basic concepts.
