Answers with Rationale to the 16 Review Questions in ANCCs Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing Review Course Workbook by Alison Lighthall Miller MSN RN-BCAs of early 2019, there are only a handful of resources available to psychiatric-mental health (PMH) nurses to use as comprehensive study guides when preparing for the ANCC Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing Certification Exam. And there are only two that are sanctioned by the ANCC itself: Kim Hutchinson’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing: Review and Resource Manual (5th Edition), and the ANCC’s own Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing: Review Course Workbook, 2014. Both are very useful.
However, in ANCC’s Workbook, there are 16 thought-provoking Review Questions, for which there are no answers provided.
Over the years, I’ve had several students ask me to help them sort out one or more of the questions and then help them reach the correct answer. It’s always been a useful exercise for them, because these questions, unlike the knowledge-based questions that most of us have grown used to in our in educational careers (e.g., “What are the side effects of lithium toxicity?”) force the reader to consider multiple variables and pieces of information all at once. There’s a lot to learn from each of these questions.
This book contains those answers. It is my hope that this “answer key,” which provides an in depth discussion for each of the 16 questions, will help enrich your studying and help you achieve your goal of becoming a Board Certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse.
