A humanistic, holistic approach to thinking like a nurse

Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health: Across the Lifespan is a family-focused text that covers maternal-newborn nursing and women’s health topics with special attention to evidence-based practice, cultural competence, critical thinking, professionalism, patient education, and home/community care. Relatable and engaging, the text is built upon the philosophy that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes, and that family members are partners in care. The holistic approach helps readers develop their clinical-reasoning skills, and prepare to practice nursing in an ever-changing healthcare environment.

MyNursingLab for the Maternity Nursing course helps students move beyond memorization to true understanding through application—resulting in better performance in the course—and provides educators with a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress.
