This extensive study guide presents over 400 pages of review and testing material which has been thoroughly revised to reflect Mosby's MEDICAL-SURGICAL NURSING textbook. This clinically relevant guide reinforces students' learning and enables further review outside of the classroom. Focusing on key components of care for all common medical-surgical conditions and procedures, the STUDY GUIDE reinforces the essential, need-to-know information to better prepare students for practice in the medical-surgical nursing setting. * Presents approximately 300 worksheets for student learning and review. * Fosters the development of critical thinking skills in the clinical setting with critical thinking activities and case studies. * Features an extensive variety of exercises which makes review and study of this challenging content more interesting for students. Includes fill-in-the-blank worksheets, quiz-art review sheets, true-false questions, critical thinking activities, crossword puzzles, case studies, word scrambles, matching, and multiple-choice questions. * Includes comprehensive cross-references to Lewis, MEDICAL-SURGICAL NURSING, 5/e, which provide students with thorough background information. * Contains answers to all exercises in the back of the study guide to facilitate self study. * Perforated and hole-punched 8-1/2" x 11" format facilitates removal and storage in a 3-ring binder.
