NCLEX-PN Q&A Plus! Made Incredibly Easy , 2E is designed to help pre-licensure nursing students in practical and vocational nursing programs prepare to take the licensing examination. Used with Lippincott NCLEX-PN PassPoint, the digital and print resources together act as an ongoing assessment tool to monitor progress throughout the curriculum.
The book is divided into seven parts. Part 1 explains the basics of NCLEX test construction and gives ideas to students about how they should prepare. Parts II to V are desinged to support the four major content areas of pre-licensure programs: medical-surgical, psychiatric/mental health, maternity, and pediatric nursing. Within these four sections, each begins with a bulleted content review of essential concepts, followed by multiple questions and answers in a side-by-side format. Part VI, "Coordinated Care," emphasizes content areas that go across all the other content areas and are critical for any nurse to know to be a safe and effective practitioner: management/supervision and ethical/legal issues. Part VII consists of two comprehensive tests. One contains 85 questions (the minimum number of items any student taking the NCLEX-PN will receive) and the other contains 205 questions (the maximum number of items any student taking the NCLEX-PN will receive).
The product offers more than 4,000 questions that prompt active learning and higher-order thinking. The questions align with the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) 2017 PN test plan, and are written in the style used on the licensing examination. Other features include the use of all alternate-format questions found on the licensing examination, detailed rationale for both correct and incorrect answers, and information about the NCLEX-PN.
