Overview

The new Second Edition of Essentials of Maternity, Newborn, and Women's Health Nursing covers a broad scope of topics emphasizing common issues and maternity-specific information. With a unique concept-based approach and nursing process focus, this book helps students go from concept to application by building on previously mastered knowledge. This edition has an updated focus on evidence-based practice and increased emphasis on nursing management, focusing on assessment and interventions.

The outstanding artwork includes nearly 500 photos and diagrams that clearly illustrate concepts and clinical conditions. Healthy People 2010 boxes identify maternity-specific health trends and nursing implications for achieving these objectives. Each chapter opens with a case study, which unfolds throughout the chapter to inspire critical thinking. The book includes nursing care plans that highlight each step of the nursing process, and incorporates teaching guidelines to prepare students to educate families. Watch and Learn icons direct students to free video clips highlighting growth and development, communication, and nursing care.

A bound-in CD-ROM and a companion Website include video clips and NCLEX®-style review questions.

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.
