Nursing care for pregnant women and children is a family-centered process, and Maternal and Child Nursing Care, 3e, is a text that addresses the needs of families across the continuum, from conception through adolescence.
The themes that shape this book– nursing care in the community, client education, critical thinking, and evidence-based practice in nursing–will prepare students for the responsibility of managing care for families with diverse healthcare needs, and to work collaboratively with families and other health professionals to enhance care.
‘’I prefer the London text after previewing it. Competing texts are not as up-to-date. London is more thorough but an easy read. It also includes more in-depth cultural coverage.’’- Professor Lewis, Ina, IL
‘’Cultural values cannot be emphasized enough. The emphasis on cultural competence related to how family deal with grief is especially well-done. The pace and depth are excellent and written at an appropriate level. Detailed, but not so complex as to be confusing. This book is superior to our current text.’’- Professor Miedema, Titusville, FL
