Overview

Susan Ricci’s 3rd edition of Essentials of Maternity, Newborn, and Women's Health Nursing helps busy students learn what they need to pass the NCLEX-RN and safely practice maternity nursing. Using a nursing process focus, the author helps students go from concept to application by building on previously mastered knowledge. Content covers a broad scope of topics emphasizing common issues to maternity-specific information.
A variety of learning features ensure student retention, such as Threaded Case Studies and Comparison Charts, as well NCLEX-Style Student Review questions (more than twice as many questions from last edition). Plus, this book includes a companion website that provides numerous resources for both students and instructors.

This primary "essentials textbook" is intended specifically as the course text for the standard, increasingly shortened Maternity courses. The book covers topics of importance without providing the unnecessary detail that is seen in virtually all essentials maternity texts on the market today.
