For Pediatric Nursing courses in associate and baccalaureate degree programs.

The most concise, readable pediatric nursing text for RN programs, this book educates nurses about the conditions and nursing interventions for health conditions affecting children, adolescents and their families. Emphasizing the latest research and evidence-based practice, it organizes material by body system instead of developmental stage, allowing faculty to teach pediatrics in integrated courses/short courses without redundancy. This edition includes a new chapter on genetic and genomic influences, a new clinical judgment feature and strong emphasis on health promotion and maintenance, growth and development, and family-centered care.
