Overview

Now in its Sixth Edition, Maternal and Child Health Nursing helps nurses understand wellness and illness as family-centered events. The author, Adele Pillitteri, views maternal-newborn and child health care not as two separate disciplines but as a continuum of knowledge. She presents the content of the two disciplines comprehensively with a holistic approach.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Robin Webb-Corbett
This textbook is written for nursing students to facilitate coverage of the maternal/newborn and child health nursing content. As a combined textbook it presents a view of maternal/newborn and childhealth care as a continuum of knowledge. The purpose of this undergraduate textbook is to present a comprehensive view of maternal/newborn and child healthcare content in the context of families and society. As the author points out, at the same time maternal/newborn and child health information is increasing, less time is devoted to either area in standard curricula. This textbook is a worthy addition to the area. This book is written for undergraduate nursing students in a combined course in maternal/newborn and child health or for a curriculum in which the concepts are integrated. The author also believes it is appropriate for graduate students expanding their knowledge. I believe it is appropriate for undergraduate students learning and reviewing this content, as well as for graduate student review. As a combination textbook, expansion of material is limited, thus sacrificing its comprehensiveness. This author is a credible authority in the area of maternal/child health, particularly in child health. This is a combined textbook presenting maternal/newborn health and child health content in an holistic context. Unique features include content combination, family context focus on National Health Goals, clinical vignettes, checkpoint questions with answers in the appendixes, and critical thinking exercises. In addition, the text presents boxes that address delegation of care and staff, as well as communication enhancers. The color photography, though limited, facilitates student learning. Itis recommended that the color photography be expanded, as well as boxed material and hormonal and ovulation content. This textbook is a worthy addition to the maternal/newborn health and child healthcare texts. For faculty desiring a combined textbook grounded firmly in context, this textbook will meet their educational needs. If such faculty desires a strong reference book in maternal/newborn health and/or child healthcare, this textbook is more limited. I strongly recommend this textbook for faculty in integrated curriculums or desiring to present the maternal/newborn health and child health content as a continuum of knowledge -- a concept I enthusiastically endorse.
Booknews
New edition of a text that views maternal-newborn and child health care not as two separate disciplines but as a continuum of knowledge. Basic themes include the experience of wellness and illness as family- centered events, the perception of pregnancy and childbirth as periods of wellness in the life of a woman, and the importance of a knowledge of child development in the planning of nursing care. It also includes themes reflective of changes in healthcare delivery and the importance of meeting the needs of a culturally diverse population. The accompanying self-study CD-ROM contains 300 multiple-choice NCLEX- style questions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
