Maternal & Child Nursing Care helps you build fundamental nursing skills for maternal-newborn and pediatric care. Through its family-centered approach, you'll learn how to engage families as co-participants in care.

Assessment Guides will help you understand and incorporate into practice physical assessment and normal findings, alterations and possible causes, and guidelines for nursing interventions. Clinical Reasoning boxes ask you to respond to case scenarios, while Evidence-Based Practice boxes challenge you to incorporate research findings.

The 6th Edition includes Healthy People 2030 objectives and a new Focus on Genetics feature. Coverage includes the QSEN concepts of informatics, quality improvement, patient-centered care, team collaboration, patient safety and evidence-based practice.
