Medical-Surgical Nursing – Single-Volume Text and Elsevier Adaptive Learning and Quizzing Package (Retail Access Card), 9th Edition
Studying is about to get a whole lot easier! Corresponding chapter-by-chapter to Medical-Surgical Nursing, 9th Edition, the Elsevier Adaptive Solutions Package combines two innovative adaptive products into one powerful learning solution. Elsevier Adaptive Learning (EAL) helps you transform textbook information into lasting knowledge, while Elsevier Adaptive Quizzing (EAQ) ensures you know how to apply that knowledge to exams and clinical practice. Both EAL and EAQ are fun, engaging, and constantly tracking and adapting to your performance so you learn more effectively and efficiently. This dynamic duo is the personalized solution you need to learn faster, remember longer, and be better prepared for exams and licensure.Table of Contents
