Multiple-choice review questions are included at the end of each chapter for immediate reinforcement of the chapter content, and to help students prepare for the NCLEX-PN.

New charts in the antepartum and intrapartum chapters summarize the physiological and psychological changes experienced by the patient, and explain the necessary nursing interventions. Updated and clarified content on the growth and development of the child and the parent helps the reader provide guidance to the parent on how to help the child achieve Erikson's stages of child development.
