Overview

Principles of Pediatric Nursing prepares you to begin thinking like a nurse. It presents a foundation of core pediatric nursing principles, with emphasis on growth and development, family-centered care and health promotion. Nursing students often bring an adult-health mindset to pediatric nursing. This text will help you visualize how to care for children, in ways that both mirror and diverge from care for adult patients.

The 8th Edition includes Healthy People 2030 objectives and a new Focus on Genetics feature. It also includes a new QSEN Concept feature demonstrating applications of QSEN competencies in clinical practice.
