Acute Care Nurse Practitioner: Clinical Curriculum and Certification Review
Edition: 1st - 1999
This practical resource functions as both a reference guide in the acute care setting and as a self-study preparation tool for Acute Care Nurse Practitioner certification. Coverage begins with a chapter on test-taking strategies, then proceeds with an in-depth review of the diseases and disorders commonly found in acute care practice. Each clinical chapter provides disease definitions, pathophysiology and etiology, signs and symptoms, physical findings, differential diagnoses, tests and diagnostic reasoning, therapeutic management/treatment/education, and outcome evaluation.
