More About This Textbook


Neonatal nursing is a rapidly developing and highly specialized area of practice whose practitioners are committed to the care of neonates, infants up to one year of age, and their families from birth and hospitalization through discharge and follow-up care. Sick newborns need the attention of such specialized nurse experts: this book encapsulates that expertise.

A foundational book for every neonatal nurse and related health care professional, Neonatal Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice articulates the essentials of neonatal nursing, its activities and accountabilities - the who, what, when, where, and how of its practice - at all care levels and settings. it is a vital resource for the nurses who, in their care of neonates and infants and their families, must understand the complexities of newborn disease processes, state-of-the-art technology, ethical issues, and families under stress.

While aimed primarily at neonatal nurses who are in practice or involved in basic and continuing nursing education, Neonatal Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice is also an essential resource for other professionals in related healthcare work, including other care providers, researchers and scholars, and those involved in funding, legal, policy, and regulatory activities.
