Prepare your students to provide quality nursing care through each stage of child development! Wong’s Nursing Care of Infants and Children, 12th Edition uses an easy-to-follow, family-centered approach to describe the care of children at each age and stage of development. The book begins with a discussion of the influences on and assessment of child health, then provides chapters on child health promotion and health problems — all organized by age groups and body systems. Up-to-date, evidence-based information helps students develop critical thinking skills along with the sensitivity needed to become compassionate, caring pediatric nurses. Now with new Next Generation NCLEX®-style content, Wong’s continues to be the leading text in pediatric nursing.
