Give students valuable experience applying their knowledge and critical thinking skills to real-world scenarios! Case Studies in LPN/LVN Nursing features 50 case studies that cover all clinical areas of practice: fundamental skills, medical-surgical adult health nursing, pediatric, maternity, mental health, geriatric nursing, and leadership management. Patient scenarios help students learn how to apply nursing knowledge to nursing practice by promoting the development of critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills. Cases integrate content on assessment findings, diagnostic/laboratory tests, pharmacology, and nutrition to encourage students to think critically about all aspects of patient care, including the physical and psychosocial needs of the patient, communication, collaboration with the health care team, teaching wellness and health promotion, and integration of cultural competence. Cases unfold as care is provided and a variety of multiple-choice, select-all-that-apply, prioritization, and short-answer questions challenge students to formulate and select relevant and/or potential decisions. The case studies are separated by clinical area, allowing students to use this worktext throughout their nursing program. Questions for the Next-Generation NCLEX® (NGN) prepare students for the biggest change to the NCLEX-PN® test plan to date. Answer keys are available to instructors on our accompanying Evolve website.

    • Fifty case studies cover patient scenarios that span the entire LPN/LVN curriculum.
    • Unfolding case progressions help students identify changes, anticipate outcomes, and prioritize care.
    • Emphasis on interprofessional collaboration builds students’ communication and delegation skills.
    • A variety of question formats reinforce critical thinking and help prepare students for the NCLEX-PN® exam.
    • Documentation questions challenge students to identify critical information to chart.
