Susan Ricci’s Essentials of Maternity, Newborn, and Women's Health Nursing helps busy students learn what they need to pass the NCLEX-RN and safely practice maternity nursing. Using a nursing process focus, the author helps students go from concept to application by building on previously mastered knowledge. Content covers a broad scope of topics emphasizing common issues to maternity-specific information. Also included are ‘global nursing perspectives’ and AWHONN guidelines, giving students a broader perspective for practice. With a focus on allowing students to apply key concepts, the 4th edition unfolding case studies are being added and a maternity video series being included with the text resources.
