Safe Maternity & Pediatric Nursing Care, 2nd Edition. Online Resources, and Davis Edge work together to create an interactive learning experience that teaches students to think critically and make the best patient care decisions.

The text, written specifically for LPNs/LVNs, provides the comprehensive nursing knowledge they need to understand in this key course. Online Resources equip instructors with the lesson plans, teaching resources, and activities to create an active classroom environment where students can apply what they’re learning. Davis Edge online quizzing tracks student progress; assesses their knowledge; prepares students for classroom exams and the NCLEX®; and provides real time analytics to identify their weak concepts and topic areas.


This is the maternity/peds textbook that focuses on what LPNs must know with just the right depth and breadth of coverage of the knowledge and skills to practice safely.

A student-friendly approach helps LPN/LVNs to master safe and effective nursing care by developing the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills they need to excel in clinical practice. Clear, concise, readable, well organized, and easy to follow, it’s the text that prepares new nurses to make the connections.

Davis Edge

  • Participation and Engagement: Are students keeping-up with their reading and assignments?
