Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy L Bubbico, DMin, MSN, MA, (Presbyterian Hospital)
Description: This neonatal nursing review highlights key study areas through the use of questions related to core concepts in neonatal intensive care nursing. It is intended as a companion to Core Curriculum for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing, 3rd edition, Verklan and Walden (Elsevier, 2004).
Purpose: This book is designed as a study guide and resource for nurses who are preparing to take the national certification exam in neonatal intensive care nursing. This tool allows nurses to review and direct their attention to crucial areas of study as well as identify areas of weakness in their knowledge base.
Audience: According to the editor, this book targets a variety of readers. It provides review and critical thinking guidance for newly employed nurses as well as skilled neonatal nurse practitioners or clinical nurse specialists. As a clinical nurse specialist in neonatal intensive care, I think this works as a quick review and as a functional tool for guiding nurse orientation and didactic refinement. The authors are skilled and well prepared from the perspective of neonatal medicine and thus are superior contributors to this work.
Features: The book provides study and critical thinking questions related to general assessment and management of the neonate, pathophysiology of neonatal disease entities, care of the premature and extremely premature infant, and, finally, ethical, legal and research issues related to professional practice in newborn intensive care. One of the book's best features is that it not only provides study and review guidance, but immediate feedback in the form of answers and rationale for the questions. Dermatological, audiological, ophthalmic, and immunologic issues are not extensively covered, but neither are they tested extensively on the certification exams.
Assessment: It is essential that this review is updated with subsequent editions of the Core Curriculum, since it provides current information and research that will likely be seen on future certification exams and can be used in clinical practice.
