Overview

This convenient, money-saving package includes the McKinney: Maternal-Child Nursing, 2e text plus a companion Study Guide at no extra cost! The textbook covers both the maternity and pediatrics portions of the nursing curriculum. A condensed format makes this book ideal for programs that teach this content in an extremely abbreviated time period. Written by expert educators in both arenas, this text provides a consistent level of depth and accuracy as well as a student-friendly writing style. Current issues and trends are addressed through the use of community nursing care plans, expanded health promotion content, enhanced communication tips, and parent/child teaching boxes.

• Want to Know boxes guide the student in teaching women, parents, and children about self-care and follow-up home care.
• Critical to Remember boxes alert the student to vital safety and care issues.
• Critical Thinking exercises challenge the student to apply learning to practice. Suggested answers and rationales appear at the end of chapters.
• Procedure boxes highlight step-by-step instructions for common clinical nursing tasks.
