—Rene DescartesThis book is designed to assist the student nurse in nursing school and in taking nursingexaminations, particularly the NCLEX-RN®exam for licensure as a registered nurse (RN).Prioritization, Delegation & Management of Care for the NCLEX-RN®Examfocuses on aspectsof management such as setting priorities for client care, delegating and assigning nursingtasks, and managing clients and staff. It contains practice questions on these topics in a widevariety of nursing arenas, including medical, surgical, critical care, pediatric, geriatric, reha-bilitation, home health, and mental health nursing. Answers—and why each possible responseis correct or incorrect—are given for all questions.Management, prioritizing, and delegation questions are some of the most difficultquestions for the student and new graduate to answer because there is no reference bookin which to find the correct answers. Answers to these types of questions require knowl-edge of basic scientific principles, standards of care, pathophysiology, and psychosocialbehaviors, and leadership qualities and the ability to think critically. It is important tonote that the test taker may not always agree with the authors’ rationale for the correctanswer. It is poor test taking to read rationales for the incorrect answers; the studentswill remember reading the rationale but not if the rationale was for the correct or incor-rect answer.Many of the answers in this book include tips to help the test taker. Termed “MakingNursing Decisions,” these tips provide help for the student in identifying exactly what thequestion is asking, in analyzing the question, and in determining the correct response.A Comprehensive Examination with answers and rationales is also included for each fieldof nursing.Practice questions and answers and practice examinations are valuable in preparing for anexamination, but the test taker should remember that there is no substitute for studying thematerial.(For general information on how to prepare for an examination and on the types of ques-tions used in nursing examinations, refer toFundamentals Success: A Q&A Review ApplyingCritical Thinking to Test Takingby Patricia Nugent, RN, MA, MS, EdD, and Barbara Vitale,RN, MA.)NCSBN BLUEPRINT FOR QUESTIONSThe National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) provides a blueprint that assistsnursing faculty in developing test questions for the NCLEX-RN®.
