Overview

For courses in maternal and child nursing care in any nursing program

Help students think like nurses with maternal-newborn and pediatric clients 
As nursing courses are shortened and clinical experiences become more limited, time is increasingly precious to both students and faculty. Designed to support faster, more efficient learning in condensed courses, Maternal & Child Nursing Care presents key content about maternal-newborn nursing, women’s health, and pediatric nursing topics in an accurate, readable way. Throughout this family-focused text, special attention is paid to health promotion, home/community care, patient and family education, clinical reasoning, evidence-based practice, and cultural competence. Engaging features help readers learn and retain essential concepts in a short period of time. The straightforward approach allows students to focus on what is most important–developing the essential skills and abilities to practice nursing in fast-changing healthcare environments. 

Also available with MyNursingLab®
