Description: This is an essential maternity and pediatrics textbook for nursing students and staff nurses providing direct patient care for obstetric and/or pediatric patients.
Purpose: The book is designed to combine maternity and pediatric basic information to build a strong knowledge base and assist with the development of maternal/pediatric clinical decision making skills.
Audience: Maternity and pediatrics nursing students and staff nurses caring for obstetric and/or pediatric patients are the intended readers. The authors are knowledgeable authorities in maternity/pediatric nursing.
