"In this book, the tools and clear presentation of information related to the actual testing process provide the learner with a framework for confidence as he or she prepares for the exam.

Praise for the first edition: “This is an excellent teaching guide and resource manual for instructors, gerontological nursing students, and practicing nurses and social workers who wish to learn more about geriatric concerns and care. It will be kept by nursing students long after they graduate as a guide to resources that will be valuable throughout their nursing careers. As a home care nurse working mainly with the geriatric community, I found the resources helpful in my practice. As an instructor, I found the book to be a very useful guide for teaching geriatrics.” Score: 90, 4 Stars —Doody’s Medical Reviews “[This] is a unique volume that effectively addresses the lack of gerontology case studies for use with undergraduate nursing students. Case studies are a pedagogically powerful approach to active learning that offer opportunities to apply content to clinical practice.” —The Gerontologist “The case narrative approach of this book promotes active learning that is more meaningful to students (and practicing nurses) and more likely to increase the transfer of evidence into practice. An excellent resource for faculty (staff educators) to facilitate critical learning skills.” —Liz Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful Aging Co-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing New York University College of Nursing Vivid case examples help guide nurses in developing appropriate interventions that include complementary and alternative health therapies and provide a basis for evaluating outcomes. Exercises interspersed throughout each case study include numerous open-ended and multiple-choice questions to facilitate learning and critical thinking. The text is unique in that some of the presented cases focus on psychosocial issues such as gambling addiction, hoarding behavior, emergency preparedness, and long-distance caregiving. Cases also depict geriatric clients who are living healthy, productive lives to counter myths and negative attitudes about older adults. Scenarios demonstrating ethical dilemmas prepare students to appropriately respond to “gray area” situations. The text is geared for AACN and NLN accreditation and is organized according to the needs of actual clinical settings. With cases that take place in the home and community or within primary, acute, and long-term care facilities, this book will be useful for courses specific to gerontology nursing or across any nursing curriculum. New to the Second Edition: A completely new section of Aging Issues Affecting the Family New cases addressing health care disparities, aging in place, and prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection Additional contemporary case studies The addition of Quality for Safety in Nursing Education (QSEN) initiatives A greater focus on prioritization and delegation of client’s needs infused throughout exercises
