Maternity and Pediatric Nursing

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009 - Medical - 1902 pages
This textbook is designed as a practical approach to understanding the health of women and children. It is written on the premise that students need to know the facts and not necessarily the whole world of knowledge surrounding that one fact. There are numerous illustrations, special boxes, photos, and tables to illustrate and clarify key information. Case studies threaded throughout the chapters promote critical thinking. Watch and Learn icons direct students to over 45 minutes of free video clips on a companion Website. The companion Website offers numerous ancillaries for both students and instructors.
