Assure your mastery of psychiatric mental health nursing knowledge while honing your critical-thinking and test-taking skills.

Questions reflect the latest advances in psychiatric/mental health nursing, DSM-5, and the latest NCLEX-RN Test Plan. Rationales for both correct and incorrect responses as well as test-taking tips help you critically analyze the question types. Plus, a 100-question exam at the end of the text helps you assess your overall comprehension.

BONUS! FREE, 30-day access to Davis Edge NCLEX-RN® included with the purchase of a new print book.

See what students are saying about the previous edition…

Increased my score significantly. “If you’re in nursing school you know mental health has a lot of gray areas. It’s not like pharm or Med surg where it’s ‘this is right, and this is wrong’. This book helped me SIGNIFICANTLY to understand WHY certain answers were correct/incorrect. It helped me to think critically a different way than I’m used to. I failed my first mental health test. The second & third test after that I got OVER 90%. I did all the questions in this book under the section we were learning; read through the notes ONCE. And that’s IT. DEFINITELY get this book if you’re struggling in mental health or afraid of what’s to come in mental health. Best decision I’ve made in nursing school so far.”—Chelsey S. Online Reviewer

Five Stars. “Made an A this semester in my mental health rotation.”—Alana G., Online Reviewer

The rationales are the reason I love the books in the Davis Success series. Very helpful. Med-Surg Success was really helpful to me, so I decided to buy the mental health version for my current semester, and I am not disappointed.”—Lynn C., Online Reviewer

Use this exceptional resource with your current book or combine it with Mary Townsend and Karyn Morgan’s psychiatric nursing texts. Each title follows the same organization as Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing Success, 4th Edition for the ideal teaching and learning experience.
