Davis Advantage for Understanding Medical-Surgical Nursing

7th Edition
Description
A student-oriented focus helps LPN/LVN students to master safe and effective nursing care by developing the critical-thinking and clinical judgment skills they need to excel on the Next Generation NCLEX and in clinical practice. Clear, concise, readable, well organized, and easy to follow, it’s the text that prepares LPN/LVN students to think critically and make the best patient care decisions.
Davis Advantage

Using a unique and proven approach across a Learn-Apply-Assess continuum, Davis Advantage engages students to help them make the connections to key topics. Whether teaching in-person or online, this complete, integrated solution aligns seamlessly with the textbook and equips instructors with actionable analytics to track students’ progress, remediate where needed, and facilitate an active learning environment.

LEARN—Personalized Learning

Personalized Learning immerses students in an online learning experience tailored to their individual needs. Students are assessed on their comprehension of key topics from the text, and then are guided through animated mini-lecture videos and interactive activities to engage students, reinforce learning, and bring concepts to life.

APPLY—Clinical Judgment

Clinical Judgment develops students’ critical thinking and clinical reasoning, helping them to build the clinical judgment skills they need to practice safe and effective nursing care and to prepare for the Next Generation NCLEX with confidence. Progressive case studies align with the new Next Gen NCLEX & NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement model and feature real-life, complex clinical situations that challenge students to apply knowledge, make informed decisions, and evaluate outcomes.

ASSESS—Quizzing

Quizzing uses thousands of NCLEX-style questions for assessment and remediation, including item types found on the Next Generation NCLEX. Its adaptive, question-based format provides the additional practice students need to test their knowledge, master course content, and perform well on course exams and the NCLEX.
