This must-have workbook helps students learn the prioritization and delegation skills needed to survive nursing school, pass the NCLEX-RN® examination, and make the transition to practice in today's healthcare environment. Consisting of three parts plus an answer key, this resource provides numerous opportunities for students to review cases and answer questions similar to those they will see on the NCLEX-RN examination - including questions in alternate-item formats . Part 1, written by delegation expert Ruth Hansten, is an introduction that provides a practical review of clinical delegation skills and serves as a framework for the exercises that follow. Part 2 consists cases of patients who have relatively straightforward health problems followed by NCLEX examination-style questions focusing on prioritization, delegation, and assignment. Part 3 consists of complex, unfolding cases involving patients who have multiple health conditions, as well as complex patient assignments.
Helpful for NCLEX-RN Review
By K. Onderdonk on Aug 05, 2006
This concise and practical book contains exercises that help the reader focus on the prioritization content of the NCLEX exam. Most of the recent NCLEX test takers with whom I have spoken have seen a big emphasis on these types of questions on their exams. I would say that 35%-40% of my questions on the NCLEX exam had a prioritization emphasis, so this book was a great supplement to my studies.

Very good nclex review "add-on" material to accompany any nclex review books. highly recommended. I rate it only 4 stars because there's are more topics to be discussed with prioritation, delegations etc on real nclex test.
This book helped me study for the NClex
By Sarah Mckay on Jan 17, 2008
I took a Kaplan course to help prepare for the NCLEX. It was basically about how much prioritization was going to be on the NCLEX. So I chose to purchase this book. It is full of review exercises about delegation and prioritization and it is very user friendly. It also contains CASE STUDIES that are about one patient that is helpful it getting "the big picture" when caring for a patient.
Great for Nursing Mangement Class
By Booklover on Nov 08, 2009
I purchased this book (2006 edition) during my Med/Surg class and realized that this wasn't exactly the study guide I needed. Now I am taking a nurse management class and this book is priceless. The entire focus of the book is "management of care" as found on the NCLEX exam. The book is not very thick (only around 200 pages) but it is full of NCLEX style questions. The first half of the book offer's NCLEX questions based on system (respiratory, endocrine, cardio, etc) then the second half presents case studies with questions following. Until I started taking a management class that specifically dealt with prioritization, delegation and assignment , I could not fully appreciate this study book. Many people disagree and struggle with management questions because sometimes what is done in the work place does not agree with the text book answers given on the NCLEX exam. One must learn how to answer questions the NCLEX way in order to pass. I noticed that a new addition (2010) of this book is begin released (can pre-order now) so perhaps wait for that addition if you can. It is my understanding that starting in April 2010 the percentage of management questions on the NCLEX exam is increasing therefore understanding prioritization, delegation, and assignment is critical to the nursing student.
Must need to pass NCLEX
By $ Hungry on Jan 07, 2010
This book is a must need to pass NCLEX. This book is the only book that offers NCLEX style priority and delegation practice questions other books tend to have fact based questions. Also, use Saunders CD for fact type questions and the Hesi test prep cd which are similar to the actual style of NCLEX questions.
Great book for review!

I'm taking a Management class for nursing and this book really helped me on my test. It's difficult to study for this class so I just did this book and got an A!!!
Prioritization,Delegation and Assignment exercises for Med-Surg Nursing
By Sadie James on Mar 28, 2009
This book came highly recommended by a NCLEX review program. I Found it very challenging and from what I have heard extremely helpful for Boards prep.
grey area questions
By Taklu on May 17, 2009
It is possible with this book to learn how to answer grey area questions in delegation and priority in NCLEX exam. Great resource.
VERY HELPFUL RESOURCE! A terrific buy!!!!!!!
By Kc C. on Mar 29, 2008
I really liked this purchase specially with the unbeatable price by amazon. It helped me understand helpful strategies about test-taking and assumptions I previously had about the NCLEX was corrected. The Practice questions are very realistic and helpful. I have read different books that had different formats and I usually get intimidated by them. This is a book that is so user-friendly and i love it! I was never intimidated by it and it's easy to understand and analyze. A terrific buy!
A must for NCLEX
By S. Boudreaux on Jul 05, 2009
This book, in addition to the Saunders comprehensive review helped me prepare for NCLEX better than any other. As everyone knows, delegation is HUGE on NCLEX, so having a book that is nothing but delegation questions was very benificial.
