Introduction- Study Guide for Fundamentals of Nursing PDF

Marilee LeBon, in close consultation with the authors of the seventh edition of Fundamentals of Nursing: The Art and Science of Nursing Care, has carefully developed this Study Guide. We recognize that beginning students in nursing must learn an enormous amount of information and skills in a short period of time. The Study Guide is structured to help you integrate the knowledge you have gained and begin to apply it to the practice of nursing. To help you accomplish this goal, the following types of exercises are provided in each chapter of the Study Guide.

PRACTICING FOR NCLEX

Multiple Choice Questions: Each chapter contains a section of multiple choice questions presented in the NCLEX-RN exam format. Alternate-Format Questions: The alternateformat-style questions for the NCLEX-RN exam include the types of questions described below.
Several of these types are provided in each chapter to help you become familiar with this NCLEX format. They are:
Multiple Response Questions: questions with a detailed stem that require you to select more than 1 correct answer
Prioritization Questions: questions with a detailed stem that require you to place the options provided in the correct order
Hot Spot Questions: questions that require you to identify a specific area on an illustration or a graph
Fill-in-the-Blank Questions: questions that require you to perform a calculation that results in a very specific number answer
Chart/Exhibit Questions: multiple choice questions with a detailed stem that require you to review information in a chart or an exhibit in order to select the correct answer

DEVELOPING YOUR KNOWLEDGE BASE
These exercises group similar types of questions together to help you learn the information in a variety of formats. The types of questions included follow the same format in each Study Guide chapter, but not every type of question is used in each chapter. The format includes:
Fill-in-the-Blanks
Identification Questions
Matching Exercises
Correct the False Statements
Short Answer

APPLYING YOUR KNOWLEDGE
These questions challenge you to reflect on the critical thinking and blended skills developed in the classroom and apply them to your own practice of the art and science of nursing care.
Critical Thinking Questions: these questions offer an exciting and practical means to challenge the assumptions you bring to nursing and to “stretch” your application of new theoretical concepts.
Reflective Practice Using Critical Thinking Skills: these exercises offer opportunities to use your critical thinking ability and knowledge of blended skills to respond to reallife scenarios, similar to those that may occur in your practice.
Patient Care Studies: These studies in the clinical nursing care chapters provide a unique opportunity for you to “encounter” an actual patient, and to use the nursing process to assess and diagnose the patient’s nursing needs and brainstorm ways to best meet these needs.

The answers to the Practicing for NCLEX, Developing Your Knowledge Base, and Patient Care Study questions are included in the Answer Key at the back of the book so that you can immediately assess your own learning as you complete each chapter.

We hope you find this Study Guide to be helpful and enjoyable, and we wish you every success as you begin the exciting journey toward becoming a nurse.
