Editorial Reviews

Sharon M. Conliffe-Torres
This new book provides a comprehensive overview of topics pertinent to all aspects of low-risk perinatal nursing. As an edited work with contributions from multiple experts in the field of maternal-child nursing, this book describes the physiologic and psychosocial adaptations occurring during pregnancy; maternal complications and risk assessment strategies; labor and delivery; antenatal, intrapartal, and postnatal care; neonatal adaptation and routine newborn care; discharge planning strategies; and perinatal home care services. It also includes information concerning collaborative care management; quality improvement and outcome monitoring; and professional, legal, and health policy issues directly impacting perinatal nursing practices. As stated in the introduction, the purpose is to provide a comprehensive reference manual reflecting the current status of perinatal nursing practices within the United States. Targeted for low-risk perinatal nurses, this nursing text provides and excellent, up-to-date clinical resource manual relevant for all perinatal nurses across multiple healthcare settings. While providing an easy-to-read reference for experienced nurses, this text is also useful as an orientation guide for new employees as well as providing graduate nurses a comprehensive review of maternity nursing for licensing exams. This book is well organized and is presented in a clear and concise manner. The 18 chapters are logically grouped into sections, with each section focusing on a specific aspect of perinatal nursing practice. Numerous illustrations, photographs, boxed tables summarizing major clinical concepts, and extensive reference lists facilitate understanding of subjectmaterials. Another salient feature is the appendix that includes sample formats of clinical algorithms, care paths, quality improvement surveys, and assessment and documentation forms. This text is an excellent clinical resource for perinatal nurses and students providing care to low-risk antenatal, intrapartal, postpartal, and neonatal clients. The book examines the multiple issues associated with normal pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care, and also discusses the influences of professional, legal, and economic factors on current perinatal practice. The relevance and timeliness of this subject material makes this text a valuable reference for low-risk perinatal nurses in all areas of practice.

    Do NOT purchase for RNC exam

    I bought this thinking AWHONN, it's got to be resourceful for the RNC exam. Heck no! It's completely saturated with studies, percentages, and irrelevant data including paragraphs on what we DON'T do/use anymore... how is this helpful?. There is limited pathophysiology (hint hint on what the RNC exam is dominated by) and it excluded topics I had to look up elsewhere... like versions and macrosomia. Basic things. Too much focus on opinions, not enough to prepare you for the RNC exam or for any practical nursing exam. A good read if you want a supportive book for the heart of nursing and to assist in policy changes on your unit.

    Great Information!

    Yes, the other reviewer it right, this is not a good book for the NCLEX. It is however a great book for nurses in or entering the perinatal field. If the title doesn't say NCLEX review book then it's not an NCLEX review book.

    Book Review

    I have learned a lot from reading this book. The information was relevant to my work and I am able to use the information I read right away. For someone that may be new in the profession, it can give an excellent guide and resource. The explanation was concise and easy to understand. Information regarding culture was a bit redundant and the short cuts are a little difficult to follow. If you are not well versed with"IOM", "VSDHHS" etc.., it might confuse you as a reader. You can see the wealth of knowledge the author has and her skill in explaining it simply enough for a reader to understand. I have used a lot of the information not only at work but also in conversations on my CE classes. I did enjoy and still enjoy reading the book.
