"This pathophysiology text offers a unique conceptual approach that facilitates learning by viewing pathophysiology as health care professionals do. Where a traditional systems-based approach impractically isolates diseases to a single body system, this approach recognizes how disease affects multiple systems. Additionally, rather than learning only about a limited number of diseases, aiming for rote memorization of the key factors in those diseases, the conceptual approach details the mechanisms of disease. By explaining the core concepts of altered human function, students can apply a deeper understanding to a host of diseases, rather than trying to memorize facts about specific conditions. Because students learn through application they learn to think about pathophysiology the way they will need to in a clinical setting, by working from symptoms to the cause, rather than the other way around. Each chapter discusses clinical models, enhancing the real-world application of the material"--Provided by publisher.

A complete roadmap to NCLEX-RN® success! Three distinct sections in the book plus a bonus CD-ROM show you the way.
Step 1 is an orientation and review of test-taking strategies with guidance for international and repeat test-takers.
Step 2 consists of 60 practice tests over six chapters, all with NCLEX descriptors. Each chapter corresponds to one of the exam’s major subject areas: fundamentals, medical-surgical, ob/newborn, pediatric, mental health, and gerontological nursing. Each chapter also features specialized, stand-alone tests for pharmacology, management of care, and cultural diversity.
Step 3 is two comprehensive exams that test mastery of all subject areas covered in the book and on the NCLEX-RN.
