The Second Edition of Introductory Maternity and Pediatric Nursing reflects the underlying philosophy of love, caring, and support for the childbearing woman, the child, and the families of these individuals. Recognizing that the responsibility of caring for the pregnant woman and ill child increasingly falls on the family, this text stresses teaching the patient, family, and child with an emphasis on prevention. This edition's updated full-color photos and drawings enliven and support the text, especially for visual learners.
A companion Website includes video clips related to developmental tasks of pregnancy, vaginal birth, Cesarean delivery, assisting with breastfeeding, developmental considerations in caring for children, care of the hospitalized child, and pediatric medication administration.
This brand-new, full-color textbook presents both maternity and pediatric nursing at an appropriate level for LPN/LVN students. The text uses a nursing process framework and emphasizes the LPN's specific role. Throughout the text are features that help students develop critical thinking skills and apply content to practice--such as nursing procedures, nursing care plans, clinical pearls, patients' and caregivers' stories, critical thinking questions, cultural snapshots, family teaching tips, and over 500 illustrations. Each chapter is followed by an integrated study guide/workbook with NCLEX(R)-style questions, Critical Thinking: What Would You Do? scenarios including dosage calculations, and Study Activities including Internet activities.
