Overview

Maternity Nursing was designed for you, the student. You're busy. You've got a lot to do and a lot to learn. You need a book that will help you understand the concepts you'll be tested on - both in the classroom and in practice. Page through this book and check out the following features: complete and focused content presentation in a clear, readable writing style; careful integration of the importance of understanding family, culture, and health promotion; the five-step nursing process - the organizational framework for most of your texts and practice - is consistently applied throughout; full-color design with more than 400 full-color photos and drawings brings key concepts clearly to life; and learning Objectives and Key Terms at the beginning of each chapter and Key Points and Critical Thinking Exercises at the end of each chapter to enhance learning and reinforce critical thinking skills.

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

How do we care for a woman of childbearing age in today's society? The answers are found in this book, one of the most comprehensive reproductive health books on the market today. It is a "must-have" for maternity nursing students, no matter the program they're enrolled in. This book not only addresses the fundamentals of maternity nursing, but integrates the importance of understanding family, culture, and health promotion into the continuum of care.

The well known editors have previously published in the area of obstetrical/newborn nursing with numerous other publications to their credit. Worthy features of this book include detailed colored illustrations and boxed features of concise pertinent information for memory retention. Case management is used as the organizing framework for the nursing care chapters.
