Download and read online Prioritization Delegation and Assignment in PDF and EPUB Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment: Practice Exercises for the NCLEX® Examination is the only review book on the market with a focus on prioritization and management of care-just like the current NCLEX Examination itself! The workbook's unique approach establishes your foundational knowledge and then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help you build confidence in your prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills. It offers unique preparation for the NCLEX Examination and effectively equips you to practice in today's fast-paced healthcare environment. UNIQUE! Emphasis on the NCLEX Management-of-Care Focus: LaCharity is the only workbook available that focuses on the NCLEX Exam's management-of-care focus No other book on the market addresses the heavy management-of-care emphasis - consisting of prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment - of the current NCLEX Examination (17-23% of the 2013 NCLEX-RN Exam). Graduating seniors report that LaCharity has been invaluable in preparing them to pass the NCLEX Exam and enter into practice. UNIQUE! Three-Part Organization: The book consists of three parts, each of which builds on the previous one: . Part 1: Introduction; Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios; Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios. This organization establishes foundational knowledge and then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help students build confidence in their prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills. It also helps students move from passing the NCLEX-RN Exam to "hitting the ground running" as they transition into clinical practice. Part 1: Introduction: Part 1, consisting of a chapter by delegation expert Ruth Hansten, provides guidelines for prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment decisions. The Introduction provides a concise, practical foundation on which Parts 2 and 3 build. Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios: Organized by body system, the chapters in Part 2 begin to give students practice in applying the principles from Part 1 to relatively straightforward scenarios involving single patients or simple patient assignments. Straightforward NCLEX-style multiple-choice, multiple-select, ordering, and short-answer questions help students develop and build confidence in prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills while working within the confines of relatively simple health scenarios. Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios: Unfolding cases in Part 3 gradually immerse students in realistically complex clinical situations involving patients with complicated health problems or challenging assignment issues. These unfolding cases build on the skills learned in Part 2 to equip students to make sound decisions in realistic, complex health scenarios involving complicated health problems and/or challenging patient assignment decisions. The "unfolding" nature of each case realistically demonstrates the progression of typical health scenarios and helps students learn to "think like nurses" by developing what Benner (2010) calls "clinical imagination." Answer Key: The in-depth Answer Key at the back of the book provides not only the correct answer but also a detailed rationale and an indication of the focus of the question, whether prioritization, delegation, supervision, or patient assignment. Detailed rationales encourage formative assessment, in which students learn as much from answering incorrectly as they do from answering correctly. Expanded content focus to include psychiatric/mental health, OB/maternity, and pediatrics along with med-surg areas New chapters on infection control and obstetrics
