Gerontological Nurse Certification Review
by Alison E. Kris RN PhD (Author)
This is the only certification review for the gerontology nursing specialty exam that has it all? a comprehensive review section covering key content included on the exam, well-honed test-taking strategies, and an extensive test bank with answers and rationales. The second edition is completely updated to mirror the new format and content of the 2015 certification exam. It now features rationales for all review questions to promote critical thinking and includes new or expanded sections on health promotion and person-centered care, state-of-the-art drug information, and instruction on leadership, management, patient education, and population health.
Concise and to-the-point, the resource contains all of the information required for test success, including step-by-step directives on how to best prepare for the certification exam, a meticulous content review presented according to the test blueprint, and 500 questions with answers and rationales that mirror the type of questions included on the exam. The dissection and analysis of a variety of questions likely to appear reinforce crucial test-taking strategies, and clues for memorizing information and tips for prioritizing answers offer additional tactics for exam success. An unrivalled resource for test preparation, the book will also be useful for students and teachers of gerontology and practicing nurses working with older adults.
