Nursing is in high demand, especially amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. However, while the supply could be there for nursing students to meet  the high demand for nurses, few rarely know the immense pressures of nursing school, the coursework, the standardized exams such as the HESI, the Exit HESI, and finally the dreaded NCLEX-RN exam.

Nursing takes a tremendous mental, physical, and emotional toll on future nurses both inside and outside of the classroom setting. Therefore, who is better to  write a study guide using two prominent nursing text books on both the Exit HESI and the NCLEX-RN exam, than a former MSN, CNL student herself.

The textbooks used for the content of this book are “Saunders Comprehensive NCLEX-RN examination” by Silvestri, the 7th edition and “HESI Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination” by Al Arabi, Cuellar, Dufrene, Garner, Jemison, Law, Leland, Pine, and Ralph, the 6th edition. This study guide version of these two popular Nursing  textbooks will benefit nursing students who need one clear and concise  resource that will meet their needs.

Additionally, this book includes HESI hints and pyramid points that are highlighted throughout the book and chapters on Personal Nutrition and  Fitness, and Mental Health and Wellness.
