I agree with a couple of other reviewers in that this gives a somewhat superficial overview of pediatric nursing. The charts, graphs, and tables are wonderful but if you're digging for pathophysiology or pharmacology relevant to a disease process, this is not the place to look. Great for my 8 week crash course, but if I were to choose pediatric nursing as my future, I would look somewhere else.

Clear and easy to understand, but information is pretty superficial. If want detailed info regarding pathophysiology or treatment modalities, you'll have to look elsewhere. It does a great job, though, of sensitively discussing the deep psychosocial impact of child's illness, injury and/or death on the entire family.

This book is NOT a great resource for childhood infections, diseases, or specific information. I couldn't use it for a reference on any care plan, because it really isn't specific enough with rationales or theory.

Good introduction to the mentality needed to work pediatrics, though, which is probably great for nurses in the field. Not as helpful to students who really need a valuable resource for information that is conscise and clear, but a decent start to perspectives in pediatrics.

A really great source for pathophys of children's illnesses and diseases, as well as info on family-centered care and child development. I will keep it!

This book was ok, it is a textbook after all. Pediatrics was difficult, short course, and lots of differences because of age.

Extremely informative. I've been using quite often during my clinical placement.
I dont like reading school books.
