The review covers all topics found on the exam, including disorders by body system, wound care, perioperative nursing, collaborative practice, nursing research, and legal issues. The book reviews signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, medical treatments, nursing assessments, and interventions for scores of problems. Review questions, posttests, and answers with rationales are included.

This edition reflects current NANDA Taxonomy II nursing diagnoses, arranged by nursing domain, and recent CDC infection prevention and control guidelines.
