The companion Study Guide has been completely revised for the 14th edition to provide additional learning resources that complement rather than duplicate those in the textbook. The popular two-column, question-and-answer review Sheet for each textbook chapter has been retained, supplemented by a rich collection of Learning Activities. Practice Questions for the NCLEX examination give students practice in preparing for licensure exams. Answers are provided in the Instructor's Electronic Resource, so that faculty can distribute them at their discretion.
