Core Curriculum for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing
M. Terese Verklan, Ph.D., Marlene Walden, Ph.D.
Elsevier Saunders, 2004 - Medical - 1007 pages
The result of collaboration between AWHONN, NANN, and AACN, this valuable reference provides essential knowledge on today's neonatal intensive care nursing practice. Beginning with an overview of obstetric care and the infant in transition to extrauterine life, it proceeds into more in-depth coverage of the most common neonatal disorders and their management. Presented in a concise and consistent outline format, each chapter walks readers through the neonatal condition including the definition, etiology, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments, and outcomes. It's also ideal as a study guide for those wishing to prepare for certification examinations in neonatal intensive care nursing.
