Book Description: This full-color LPN/LVN-level textbook presents maternity nursing using a nursing process framework. Throughout the text are features that help students develop critical thinking skills and apply content to practice—such as nursing procedures, nursing care plans, clinical pearls, patients' and caregivers' stories, critical thinking questions, cultural snapshots, family teaching tips, and over 200 illustrations. Each chapter is followed by an integrated study guide/workbook with NCLEX®-style questions, Critical Thinking: What Would You Do? scenarios including dosage calculations, and Study Activities including Internet activities. Introductory Maternity Nursing is an ideal complement to Hatfield, Broadribb's Introductory Pediatric Nursing, Sixth Edition. Instructors who prefer a combined maternity/pediatric text can use Klossner/Hatfield, Introductory Maternity and Pediatric Nursing.
