Book Preface

Sincere appreciation and warmest thanks are extended to the many individuals who in their own ways have contributed to the publication of this book. First, we want to thank all of our nursing students who we have assisted to prepare to take the NCLEX examination. Their enthusiasm and inspiration led to the commencement of our professional endeavors in conducting review courses for the NCLEX exam for nursing students.

Their input has certainly added a special uniqueness to this publication.

We wish to acknowledge all the nursing faculty who taught in our NCLEX review courses.

Additionally, we want to acknowledge and sincerely thank our husbands: Laurent (Larry) and Brent. We thank Laurent W. Valliere, or Larry, for his contribution to this publication, for teaching in our NCLEX review courses, and for his commitment and dedication in helping our nursing students prepare for the NCLEX from a nonacademic point of view.
