Includes all topics covered in our fundamentals nursing curriculum. The two topics not included in detail in this textbook are nursing skills and nursing assessments, but these resources are included via hyperlinks to other texts covering this content within this fundamentals textbook.
There is a glossary included at the end of each chapter to review unfamiliar bold-faced terms within the text. This book is written at a nursing fundamentals student level. Nursing interventions are explained in simple terms and include photos and tables to depict details further.
There was some information that could be correct, such as the ISBARR examples. I believe the information listed under the situation, background, and assessment needs to be under the correct title. In the nursing diagnosis examples, there is conflicting information regarding the risk for nursing diagnosis. When it's potential, there are two parts of the nursing diagnosis: the problem and the related factors due to there is no evidence since it has not happened. The text states to include the problem and as evidence for a risk for diagnosis. When also stating if a goal has been met with evaluating a patient for their plan of care, it's best to list it as "Goal met, Goal partially met, or Goal met." The mnemonic for pain is "OLD CARTS," not "OLDCARTES," which I had looked up within other resources to see if there is an update, and every resource I found still states "OLD CARTS."
By reviewing the textbook and changing the information provided, I believe this would be a great textbook. This textbook appears to be more at an Associate degree level for nursing students than a Bachelor in Science of Nursing degree.
This Nursing Fundamentals textbook is an open educational resource with CC-BY licensing developed for entry-level nursing students. Content is based on the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) statewide nursing curriculum for the Nursing Fundamentals course (543-101), the 2019 NCLEX-RN Test Plan, the 2020 NCLEX-PN Test Plan, and the Wisconsin Nurse Practice Act.
This book introduces the entry-level nursing student to the scope of nursing practice, various communication techniques, and caring for diverse patients. The nursing process is used as a framework for providing patient care based on the following nursing concepts: safety, oxygenation, comfort, spiritual well-being, grief and loss, sleep and rest, mobility, nutrition, fluid and electrolyte imbalance, and elimination. Care for patients with integumentary disorders and cognitive or sensory impairments is also discussed. Learning activities have been incorporated into each chapter to encourage students to use critical thinking while applying content to patient care situations.

NCLEX stands for National Council Licensing Examination. It is a test to determine if the candidate possesses the minimum level of knowledge necessary to perform safe and effective entry-level nursing care. The NCLEX-RN (for registered nurses) and the NCLEX-PN (for practical/vocational nurses) are examinations prepared by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), whose mandate is to protect the public from unsafe nursing care. The NCSBN members include nursing regulatory bodies in the 50 states of the US, the District of Columbia, and four US territories.
Thank you so much for this free site. I found it just as helpful as Kaplan and Sanders which I paid for. I recommended this nurseslabs to some of my nurse friends preparing for the NCLEX. I used it to study and passed my NCLEX October 28. I will continue to use this as a reference. Once again Thank-You.A.Haynes RN

Amazing and really awesome job to you Matt and your entire team, may God replenish your source for giving us this for free. I have recommended to all my friends and family. Remain blessed and stay safe.
Your test questions have greatly helped me pass my NCLEX. I passed my NCLEX today and thank you to Nurseslabs. I came across this website by accident and I do not know how but it was divine intervention. I will definitely recommend Nurseslabs to my friends. The quality of the questions and rationales were very good and you would not think this is all for free the kind of work that came with it. 2b1af7f3a8
