Go to class Learn to study Take school seriously (study)

As your authors, we have talked to students across the country. We've learned that you are concerned about your future, you want your education to serve a purpose, you are adjusting to constant life changes, and you want honest and direct guidance on how to achieve your goals. We designed the features of Keys to Nursing Success based on what you have told us about your needs.

The Contents of the Package:
What's Included

We chose the topics in this book based on what you need to make the most of your educational experience. You need a strong sense of self, learning style, and goals in order to discover and pursue the best course of study. You need good study skills to take in and retain what you learn both in and out of class. You need to manage your time, money, and relationships so you can handle the changes life hands you. Keys to Nursing Success can guide you in all of these areas and more.

The distinguishing characteristics and sections of this book are designed to make your life easier by helping you take in and understand the material you read.

Lifelong learning. The ideas and strategies you learn that will help you succeed in school are the same ones that will bring you success in your career and in your personal life. Therefore, this book focuses on success strategies as they apply to school, work, and life, not just to the classroom or laboratory.

Thinking skills. Being able to remember facts and figures won't do you much good at school or beyond unless you can put that information to work through clear and competent thinking. This book has a chapter on critical and creative thinking that will help you explore your mind's actions and thinking processes.

Skill-building exercises. Today's graduates need to be effective thinkers, team players, writers, and strategic planners. The exercises at the end of the chapters will encourage you to develop these valuable career skills and to apply thinking processes to any topic or situation.

Diversity of voice. The world is becoming increasingly diverse in ethnicity, perspective, culture, lifestyle, race, choices, abilities, needs, and more. Every student, instructor, course, and school is unique. One point of view can't possibly apply to everyone. Therefore, many voices will speak to you from these pages. What you read will speak to your needs, offer ideas, and treat you with respect.

User-friendly features. The following features will make your life easier in small but significant ways.

Perforations. Each page of this book is perforated so you can tear out exercises to hand in, take with you somewhere, or keep in your date book as a reference. Exercises. The exercises are together at the ends of the chapters, so if you want to hand them all in you can do so without also removing any of the text. Definitions. Selected words are defined in the margins of the text. Long-term usefulness. Yes, most people sell back some of the textbooks they use. If you take a good look at the material in Keys to Nursing Success, however, you may want to keep this book around. Keys to Nursing Success is a reference that you can return to over and over again as you work toward your goals in school, work, and life. TAKE ACTION: READ

You are responsible for your education, your growth, your knowledge, and your future. The best we can do is offer some great suggestions, strategies, ideas, and systems that can help. Ultimately, it's up to you to use whatever fits your particular self with all of its particular situations, needs, and wants, and make it your own. You've made a terrific start by choosing to pursue an education—take advantage of all it has to give you.

From the Back Cover:

This is the first Student Success text to use a framework that has been proven to improve student learning and achievement.   Keys to Nursing Success, Third Edition, helps students build analytical, creative, and practical thinking skills.  According to this theoretical premise, also known as Successful Intelligence , all three skill areas require development to be truly successful.

 

Katz provides updated statistics on nursing salaries and demo graphics, giving teachers all the latest information in one place.  No other book enables professors both to discuss nursing as a career and to help students learn how to learn through study strategies.

 

 

Features include:

  • NEW Pedagogy – In-chapter and end-of-chapter exercises teach students to think analytically, creatively and practically.
  • Chapter Opening Q and A – Real-life student questions provide professor response.
  • Teamwork Exercise – Practical trials allow students to develop the skill of working with others.
  • Career Portfolio Exercise – Practice session prepares students to demonstrate their skills via resumes and vitas.

Additional Support – in and out of the classroom...

 

Keys to Nursing Success offers instructors an Instructor’s Manual which provides PowerPoint slides, exercises, tests, and rationales that can be used immediately.  Additional discipline-specific information can be accessed through the Student Success Supersite (www.prenhall.com/success), where students and faculty will find an array of resources. 

 

Start strong. Finish stronger.
