This practical review book meets the needs of family nurse practitioners preparing to take the national certification examinations. It provides content on both the FNP's approach to practice based on the Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan, Evaluate (SOAPE) format and a format that accommodates both the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and the test blueprint of the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Sample test questions pertaining to the specific content reviewed are included at the end of each section. Test questions are classified according to the ANCC problem areas, the Academy domains, and across the lifespan, which allows students to focus their study efforts on those items causing the most difficulty. All content areas on the FNP certification examinations are covered including common complaints, client wellness, the nurse-client relationship, and current issues. Both American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) test domains are addressed. Content is organized alphabetically by disorder/condition for easy access of information. Content review in an outline format is followed by review questions and answers with rationales. Each question is classified by clinical process to enable the reader to evaluate strengths and weaknesses and to focus review time where necessary. A new website of test questions generates practice tests. The most commonly prescribed drugs and dosages are included for illness states. Updated and expanded content covers all major areas including expanded content on the acute management of MI and CVA to address the FNPs function in urgent care settings. Expanded content within the diagnostic test section reflects positive and negative results.Kidd, Pamela Stinson is the author of 'Family Nurse Practitioner Certification Review', published 2002 under ISBN 9780323019767 and ISBN 0323019765.
