Practice readiness starts day one of nursing school with Client Cases engagement

Lippincott® Client Cases for Clinical Judgment offers a comprehensive collection of Next Generation NCLEX® case studies for nursing education, featuring over 300 scenarios inspired by real-life encounters by practicing nurse educators. Echoing the complexities of actual patient care, these brief but complex case studies presented through unfolding EHR activities are designed to promote critical thinking and decision-making skills that are crucial for competent nursing practice. With its flexible design, educators can integrate these cases throughout the curriculum for various educational purposes, including homework, flipped classroom, in-class activities, clinical practice, and NCLEX® preparation or remediation. Assignability supports student accountability and opportunity to frequently practice thinking through interacting with patients.

This tool is completely evidence based and ties directly to clinical environments. Learners and faculty every day of class, in every lab, after every day of clinical, and with exam remediation can use this tool to ensure that practice readiness is the primary focus starting day one of nursing school until the day they take NCLEX. Now fully assignable with a gradebook, instructors ensure their students are growing their clinical judgment mindset while fostering accountability.
