The fourth edition of this text is intended for pediatric nursing courses, one of the required courses in nursing programs. The most concise, readable pediatric nursing text for use in RN programs. Exceptionally user-friendly and up-to-date, it uses a unique body system approach rather than developmental stages, allowing faculty to teach pediatrics in integrated course or short course without redundancy. This approach also focuses students on nursing care. Features abundant four-color photos and drawings throughout, extensive marginal notes, chapter-opening vignettes and more plus a heavy emphasis on community nursing. This text details the core essentials of pediatric nursing practice while also providing the critical thinking skills necessary for future challenges.
