Engaging and easy to read, this concise textbook offers just the right level of maternity and pediatric nursing coverage. It provides a solid foundation in normal body function, then builds on that knowledge to help you understand how to modify nursing care when the unexpected arises.

Nursing Care Plans in every clinical chapter help you learn to use the nursing process to develop individualized care for maternity and pediatric patients. Communications Cues provide practical verbal and nonverbal tips for communicating effectively with patients and families. Want to Know boxes offer helpful patient teaching guidelines. Photo Stories use engaging pictures to demonstrate the types of care nurses provide in a variety of clinical settings. Pathophysiology boxes in pediatric chapters provide illustrated overviews of common disorders. Companion CD-ROM contains video clips, 3-D animations, illustrated skills, case studies with critical thinking questions, NCLEX® examination-style review questions, and an audio glossary complete with Spanish pronunciations. Evolve Student Resources Website offers up-to-date web links, video clips, resources for health care providers, review questions, and a variety of interactive exercises.
