Summary

Maternity Nursing focuses on the care of women during the childbearing years. Designed to meet the needs of today's students, it addresses the fundamentals of maternity nursing with a clear, readable writing style and concise, focused content presentation. Integrating the importance of understanding family, culture, and health promotion into the continuum of care, it also includes a strategic integration of community-based care to emphasize that care can take place wherever the woman may be. It also addresses wellness promotion and the management of women's common health problems. The companion CD comes with useful study tools, including video and animation segments and an English/Spanish audio glossary with pronunciations.
