Book DescriptionAuthors Susan Ricci and Terri Kyle have teamed up to deliver a unique resource for your students to understand the health needs of women and children. This new combination book, Maternity and Pediatric Nursing, will empower students to guide women and their children toward higher levels of wellness throughout the life cycle.
The textbook emphasizes how to anticipate, identify, and address common problems to allow timely, evidence-based interventions. Features include threaded case studies throughout each chapter, multiple examples of critical thinking, and an outstanding visual presentation with extensive illustrations depicting key concepts.
Ch. 40 The material visually contrasted and compared types of diseased hearts. This is excellent. The integration of nursing care plans and nursing diagnosis is very well written. It is excellent for students. The Common Surgical procedures are very good. The inclusion of the algorithm is great for visual learners. I liked the tie in to Healthy People 2010. This really brings in preventative care. It is critical at the Baccalaureate level to learn about Community Health Care Instructions.
Ricci Kyle is easier to read, tables are great Ch. 12. Teaching guidelines are also great and offer more to students than our current book thus keeping students involved and it's relevant and accessible vs. reading too much.
The care plans are most readable. The other organizers are better for reinforcing. They cluster the information for the big picture.
