Ensure your students are equipped with everything they need to succeed in both nursing school and professional LPN/LVN practice with Success in Practical/Vocational Nursing, From Student to Leader, 9th Edition. This unique, market-leading text features a strong emphasis on leadership and problem solving as it covers the soft skills needed for success in nursing school, in the job market, and in professional practice. Topics build on each other in a logical manner, beginning with tools to ensure student success, continuing to discuss the skills for LPN/LVN practice, and culminating in the higher-level roles and responsibilities of the LPN/LVN as a leader. The newest feature box on empowerment introduces students to the concepts of self-reflection, self-growth, and power to enhance their student experience and accomplish positive outcomes in nursing school and in practice. Additionally, like in previous editions, Critical Thinking and Try This! boxes are incorporated throughout this ninth edition to challenge students in thinking outside of the box to solve personal, academic, and professional situations. There are also practice review questions at the end of each chapter help students prepare for the NCLEX-PN® examination and chapters on Workforce Trends and Nurse State Practice Acts to help students move from the academic to the practice setting. It’s a must-have resource for any LPN/LVN student wanting to find success in today’s demanding healthcare environment.

    • Test-taking and interview preparation tips focus on preparing you to take the NCLEX-PN Examination and provide information on applications, interviews, and the job search — including electronic resumes.
    • Get Ready for the NCLEX-PN® Examination section at the end of the text contains key points, critical thinking scenarios, additional learning resources, and review questions for the NCLEX-PN Examination — including alternate format items in every chapter.
    • Full-color design and visuals makes this text visually appealing and easy to read.
    • Numbered objectives open each chapter and provide a framework for content.
    • Key points at the end of each chapter summarize chapter highlights and serve as an excellent review tool.
