Provide quality nursing care through each stage of child development! Wong’s Nursing Care of Infants and Children, 12th Edition, (ePub/PDF) 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 assessing 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 you develop critical thinking skills along with the sensitivity needed to become a compassionate, caring pediatric nurse. Written by a team of experts led by Marilyn J. Hockenberry, Wongs remains the leading textbook in pediatric nursing.
