This is the only study guide available focusing specifically on the specialized knowledge and skills required to conduct the pediatric health assessment.
Designed to accompany the text Advanced Pediatric Assessment, it reinforces essential content through case studies and multiple choice Q&As that mirror the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam format. The third edition includes new critical thinking exercises, case studies, and certification-style Q&As. It delivers a completely new chapter that covers clinical decision-making, formulating differential diagnoses, and evidence-based practice. It also provides SOAP notes for the well and abnormal exams.
The third edition continues to deliver essential practice items for all aspects of the exam, along with sample documentation and a space where students can practice their own subjective and objective findings. In addition, Anatomic Labeling Exercises reinforce knowledge essential to the APN role. Each chapter is formatted systematically for ease of use and includes chapter overview, learning objectives, essential terminology, case studies, the well child, the ill child/child with problem, multiple choice questions mirroring the exam format, SOAP notes for well and abnormal exams, and answers.
