Principles of Pediatric Nursing: Caring for Children, 5th Edition

By Jane W. Ball, Ruth C. Bindler, Kay J. Cowen

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jan 5, 2011

Description

Written for today’s nurse, PRINCIPLES OF PEDIATRIC NURSING: CARING FOR CHILDREN, 5/e explores the conditions and nursing interventions for health conditions affecting children, adolescents and their families. Emphasizing research and evidence-based practice, it organizes material by body system instead of developmental stage, allowing faculty to teach pediatrics in integrated courses/short courses without redundancy. This edition includes a new chapter on genetic and genomic influences, more emphasis on culturally competent care, and new features that emphasize clinical reasoning and health promotion. Designed to help students bridge the gap between classroom and clinical situations, the book emphasizes health promotion and maintenance, growth and development, and family-centered care.
