Overview

For courses in maternal-newborn nursing.

A humanistic approach to maternal-newborn care and women’s health
Olds’ Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women’s Health Across the Lifespan acknowledges the central role of nurses in all aspects of childbearing. Relatable and engaging, it promotes holistic, evidence-͢ased care grounded in patient-family partnerships, while supporting the clinical reasoning skills nurses need to care for patients in an ever-ͣhanging health care system. The 11th edition includes a new Reproductive Genetics chapter and a new Case Study feature, plus access to Pearson’s new MAP app with nursing strategies for educating patients and families in various situations and settings.
