great reference March 14, 2011
I rented this rental textbook because I've heard from many other nursing students at other universities that this is the text that they used. There is plenty of detail, and references are cited within the text. I found it is very useful book for all aspects of infants and children nursing care. Highly recommended for nursing students and practicing pediatric nurses.
