Description

For courses in maternal-child nursing, care of women and children, and women’s health, for both 4-year BSN-level courses and selected ADN-level (2-year) programs.

 

This is a family-focused text that provides comprehensive coverage of maternal-newborn nursing and women’s health with special attention to evidence-based practice, cultural competence, critical thinking, professionalism, patient education, and home/community care. Accurate, readable, personal, and engaging, it reflects a deep understanding of pregnancy and birth as normal life processes, and of family members as partners in care. This edition includes a deeper discussion of childbirth at risk; four new nursing care plans; updated coverage of contraception, complementary/alternative therapies, and much more. New features include Professionalism in Practice and Health Promotion Education boxes, Clinical Judgment case studies, and Critical Thinking questions. This edition also pays special attention to aligning with the AACN’s Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice.
