Pearson Reviews & Rationales: Maternal-Newborn Nursing with Nursing Reviews & Rationales / Edition 3 available in Paperback
PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: MATERNAL-NEWBORN NURSING WITH NURSING REVIEWS & RATIONALES, 3/e provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today’s “need to know” knowledge for effective maternal and newborn nursing. Developed and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, it is fully reflective of the current (2010) NCLEX-RN® Test Plan. The text thoroughly covers family-centered care during normal and complicated experiences in the prenatal, labor and delivery, postpartal, and neonatal periods. Additional chapters focus on ethical, legal, and cultural considerations; reproduction, fertility, and infertility; family planning and contraception; fetal development; laboratory and diagnostic testing; and issues of loss and grief in maternity nursing. This text’s complete support package includes access to additional questions and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.

This is one of the best purchases I have made to help me study in nursing school. It correlates well with our Old's Maternal Newborn Nursing book. It literally condenses the material into the most important aspects and helps me to better understand the information. The questions are similar to the questions we are given on exams. Don't hesitate to make this purchase!
