PEARSON REVIEWS & RATIONALES: CHILD HEALTH NURSING WITH NURSING REVIEWS & RATIONALES, 3/e provides a clear, concentrated, and up-to-date review of today's "need to know" knowledge for effective child health nursing. Developed and reviewed by a large team of nurse educators, it can be used by current nursing students as a study aid, for NCLEX-RN(R) exam preparation, or by practicing nurses seeking comprehensive yet concise review of this discipline. Fully reflective of the current (2010) NCLEX-RN(R) Test Plan, it covers pediatric growth and development, and care of children with respiratory, cardiac, neurological, renal, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and other health problems. A final chapter focuses on special situations, including autism, child abuse, poisoning, and suicide. This text's complete support package includes access to additional questions, and a tear-out NursingNotes card for clinical reference and quick review.
