The enclosed free student CD-ROM includes an electronic test bank with more than 200 NCLEX-style questions, including the new formats. Also on the CD are hundreds of learning activities, case studies with critical thinking questions, nearly 60 psychotropic drug monographs, assessment tools, care plans and critical pathways that the student can customize, and printable client education teaching guides.
