    • Critical Thinking Model exercises help you apply what you have learned in the case studies.
    • Skills performance checklists help you measure your mastery of important nursing procedures.
    • Comprehensive Understanding sections help you master the key topics and main ideas in each chapter.
    • Perforated pages are easy to tear out and hand in as homework assignments.
