Summary

Prepare for your role as a maternity and child health care nurse with this updated Seventh Edition of Adele Pillitteri’s highly respected text!

Using a nursing process framework, the book’s clear, easy-to-understand presentation and wide range of built-in learning aids is designed throughout to help you master important concepts and skills.

  • Prepare for sound practice with the step-by-step guidance provided in Nursing Care Planning Using Procedures Boxes
