Now in its Sixth Edition, Maternal and Child Health Nursing helps nurses understand wellness and illness as family-centered events. The author, Adele Pillitteri, views maternal-newborn and child health care not as two separate disciplines but as a continuum of knowledge. She presents the content of the two disciplines comprehensively with a holistic approach. Using a nursing process framework, the book presents information in a clear, reader-friendly fashion. Each chapter begins with Key Terms, Learning Objectives, and a Case Study and ends with Key Points and Critical Thinking Exercises.
