Download and read online PCCN Exam Practice Questions in PDF and EPUB PCCN Exam Practice Questions are the simplest way to prepare for the PCCN test. Practice is an essential part of preparing for a test and improving a test taker's chance of success. The best way to practice taking a test is by going through lots of practice test questions.

Our PCCN Exam Practice Questions give you the opportunity to test your knowledge on a set of questions. You can know everything that is going to be covered on the test and it will not do you any good on test day if you have not had a chance to practice. Repetition is a key to success and using practice test questions allows you to reinforce your strengths and improve your weaknesses. Detailed answer explanations are also included for each question. It may sound obvious, but you have to know which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed them) to be able to avoid making the same mistakes again when you take the real test. That's why our PCCN Exam Practice Questions include answer keys with detailed answer explanations. These in-depth answer explanations will allow you to better understand any questions that were difficult for you or that you needed more help to understand.

Who wouldn't benefit from knowing what their test is going to look like? Being prepared with Fundamentals Success meant I hit the ground running. I aced my first test when most of my classmates were facing their first ever-academic failures. Nursing school is nothing like anything I have ever done before, memorizing text books will do little to prepare you to be a critical thinker. To succeed you must be able to apply the knowledge in multi-step process...the nursing process!

Download and read online Care of the Acutely Ill Adult in PDF and EPUB Recent NICE guidance and restructuring of the way acute services are provided mean that nurses outside the traditional critical care environment are increasingly being called upon to recognize, assess, and treat the acutely ill patient. This book will equip nurses in more general wards with the knowledge and skills to care appropriately for the deteriorating patient in the clinical environment. It follows a systems-based approach, with each chapter incorporatinglearning outcomes, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, nursing management, and competence-based skills assessment. Case studies facilitate the linking of knowledge to practice. Other issues coveredinclude an exploration of why there is a need to develop acute care, the role of outreach, acute emergency situations, transfer of the acutely ill patient, caring for the post ITU patient, documentation in acute care, and continuing education and acute care delivery. The book is aimed at nurses who work in acute and high-dependency areas, as well as more general nurses who are increasingly dealing with the critically or acutely ill patient.

Download and read online The Nurses in PDF and EPUB A New York Times bestseller. “A funny, intimate, and often jaw-dropping account of life behind the scenes.”—People Nurses is the compelling story of the year in the life of four nurses, and the drama, unsung heroism, and unique sisterhood of nursing—one of the world’s most important professions (nurses save lives every day), and one of the world’s most dangerous, filled with violence, trauma, and PTSD. In following four nurses, Alexandra Robbins creates sympathetic characters while diving deep into their world of controlled chaos. It’s a world of hazing—“nurses eat their young.” Sex—not exactly like on TV, but surprising just the same. Drug abuse—disproportionately a problem among the best and the brightest, and a constant temptation. And bullying—by peers, by patients, by hospital bureaucrats, and especially by doctors, an epidemic described as lurking in the “shadowy, dark corners of our profession.” The result is a page-turning, shocking look at our health-care system.
