management of care, then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help you build confidence in your
prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills.

"..certainly a great resource for use in any healthcare setting." Reviewed by Anne Duell on behalf of Nursing Times,
September 2015

* UNIQUE! Emphasis on the NCLEX Examination’s management-of-care focus
addresses the heavy emphasis on prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment in the current NCLEX Examination
(17–23% of the 2013 NCLEX-RN Exam).* UNIQUE! Three-part organization establishes foundational knowledge and then
provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help you build confidence in your prioritization, delegation, and patient
assignment skills.
* Answer key at the back of the book offers a detailed rationale and an indication of the focus of the question to
encourage formative assessment.
* Introduction chapter by delegation expert Ruth Hansten provides guidelines for prioritization, delegation, and patient
assignment decisions as well as a concise, practical foundation on which Parts 2 and 3 build.
* Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios give you practice in applying the
principles from Part 1 with straightforward NCLEX-style multiple-choice, multiple-select, ordering, and short-answer
questions to help you develop and build confidence in prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills while
working within the confines of relatively simple health scenarios.
* Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios utilizes unfolding cases that build on
the skills learned in Part 2 to equip you to make sound decisions in realistic, complex health scenarios involving
complicated health problems and/or challenging patient assignment decisions and help you learn to "think like nurses" by
developing what Benner (2010) calls "clinical imagination."
