NCLEX Topics: Health Promotion and Maintenance

Today we continue our review of the content areas for health promotion. The aging process and developmental stages and transitions go hand in hand. We’ll review those today.

Saunders 7th edition has a unit (unit 5) dedicated to this topic.

Chapter 21 – Theories of Growth and Development (page 257)
Chapter 22 – Developmental Stages (page 265)
Chapter 23 – Care of the Older Client (page 281)
Each of those chapters include questions at the end and always you can create questions within Saunder’s database that focus on this topic.
