Book Description: Susan Ricci's 3rd edition of "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. A variety of learning features ensure student retention, such as Threaded Case Studies and Comparison Charts, as well NCLEX-Style Student Review questions (more than twice as many questions from last edition). Plus, this book includes a companion website that provides numerous resources for both students and instructors.
