Excerpts

Pediatric nursing, like all of health care, is changing rapidly. Student nurses must learn what helps them to provide safe and effective care today while integrating new knowledge and skills needed for nursing practice in the future. Faculty have the responsibility of teaching students to provide pediatric nursing care today, while equipping them to meet tomorrow's unknown health care challenges. The goal of the third edition of this textbook is to provide core pediatric nursing knowledge that prepares students for practice, and to offer the tools of critical thinking needed to apply this learning to future challenges. Students must learn to question, to evaluate the research and experiences of others, to apply information in many settings, and to constantly adapt while providing high-quality nursing care. This textbook reflects a multitude of approaches to learning that can be helpful to all students. We acknowledge that many students learn pediatric nursing in a very short time period. Therefore, the approaches in this textbook are designed to help all students assess the child's needs and to make decisions based on the standards of pediatric nursing practice. Realities of Pediatric Nursing The first edition of this textbook focused on the nursing care of children and their families in acute care environments. In the second edition, the focus was broadened to reflect the dramatic shift of pediatric health care out of the hospital and into ambulatory, home, and community settings. Many procedures are performed in short-stay units, and long-term care is often provided at home for children with complex health conditions. In the third edition, the trend for provision of care in a wide variety of settings is a continuing focus. Families are often the providers of care and case managers for children with complex health care challenges. Technological advances are resulting in earlier diagnoses and new therapies, and this content is integrated throughout the textbook. Pediatric-nursing care is provided within the context of a rapidly changing society. An examination of the major morbidities and mortalities of childhood guided the addition of new material and topics throughout the text. A new chapter on childhood nutrition addresses the influences of nutrition and associated conditions on long-term health of the individual. Another new chapter focuses on the common societal and environmental influences on health care that all nurses must understand when designing interventions to promote health. A continuing emphasis on the influence of injury is integrated throughout the book, with descriptions about the necessity of prevention and the impact of injury on mortality, hospitalization, disability, and health care needs. Many graduating nurses practice in acute care facilities, and this textbook continues to emphasize the information necessary to prepare students for working in those settings. In addition, the information provided in this textbook will enable graduates to assume positions in ambulatory care facilities, home health nursing, schools, and a variety of other settings. Effective communication methods, principles of working with families, and knowledge of pathophysiologic, psychologic, and environmental factors found in this book can all be applied to a wide variety of settings. Another major change in our society involves access to information and reliance on the Internet. In this edition, MediaLink icons send the student online to obtain the very latest information available on many topics. Nurses must learn to obtain information and then to analyze and judge the quality of information they find. Nurses must also assist children and family members to use the Internet wisely to help them in making health care decision Integration of websites throughout the book and exercises to examine and evaluate various sites assist the students applying this technology.
