Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Marilyn Brady, PhD, RN (Trident Technical College)
Description: This is a logically organized pediatric text focusing on health promotion. The organization of the text moves from the introduction to child health nursing to units on promoting health for the child-rearing family, supporting the health of children and families, and restoring and maintaining physiological and mental health.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the expanding content of child health nursing in a way that respects children as individuals and as members of families and society. This text is comprehensive and may not be suited to undergraduate courses offered in less than a semester.
Audience: This text is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students. It could be a resource for students and instructors in ADN programs. It would also be an excellent resource for the clinical setting.
Features: This text focuses on the importance of health promotion during childhood. Also, the effects of illness on children and the experience of wellness and illness as family-centered events are addressed. The emphasis on the National Health Goals throughout is unique. The text is colorful with color-coded boxed materials, tables, and figures. There are many pedagogic features designed to help students understand and retain the content. Use of diagrams is minimal; most information is provided in narrative form.
Assessment: This text is a new entry by a well-known author in the area of child health nursing. It is a comprehensive text with a health promotion focus that presents information in an efficient manner. Primary care, along with secondary and tertiary care, is the focus, and both ambulatory and in-patient settings are covered. This is a good alternative to existing texts for undergraduate and graduate programs. It is written for those who learn best by reading, and has many pedagogic features designed to help students understand and retain the content.

This text views child healthcare as a continuum of knowledge from the prenatal period through adolescence. Pillitteri (nursing, U. of Southern California) provides a progressive, in-depth discussion of the many facets of child health nursing, while promoting a sensitive, holistic outlook on nursing practice. Following an introductory unit, 32 additional chapters discuss the nursing role in health promotion for the childrearing family, in supporting the health of ill children and their families, and in restoring and maintaining the health of children and families with physiologic and mental health disorders. Contains empowering the family information boxes, and many color photographs and charts. The included CD-ROM contains multiple-choice NCLEX-style questions and feedback for answers. Annotation c.
