Wong’s Essentials of Pediatric Nursing 10th Edition Pdf Book Description:

Wong’s Essentials of Pediatric Nursing has been a leading book in pediatric nursing since it was first published almost 40 years ago. This kind of support places immense accountability and responsibility on us to earn your future endorsement with each new edition. So, with your encouragement and constructive comments, we offer this extensive revision, the tenth edition of Wong’s Essentials of Pediatric Nursing. This tenth edition continues the legacy of Donna Wong and David Wilson; our beloved colleagues. We hold dear their contributions and memories of their pursuit of excellence in all they did for the Wong textbooks. To accomplish this, Marilyn J. Hockenberry, as editor-in-chief, along with Cheryl Rodgers, coeditor, and many expert nurses and multidisciplinary specialists, have revised, rewritten, or authored portions of the text concerning areas that are undergoing rapid and complex change. These areas include community nursing, development, immunizations, genetics, home care, pain assessment and management, high-risk newborn care, adolescent health issues, end-of-life care, and numerous pediatric diseases. We have carefully preserved aspects of the book that have met with universal acceptance—its state-of-the-art research-based information; its strong, integrated focus on the family and community; its logical and user-friendly organization; and its easy-to-read style. We have tried to meet the increasing demands of faculty and students to teach and to learn in an environment characterized by rapid change, enormous amounts of information, fewer traditional clinical facilities, and less time.

This text encourages students to think critically. New to this edition is a change in the format and
content for nursing care plans throughout the book. We have developed case studies that discuss clinical scenarios allowing the student to visualize how the care plan develops as a clinical situation evolves over time. The Critical Thinking Case Studies ask the nurse to examine the evidence, consider the assumptions, establish priorities, and evaluate alternative perspectives regarding each patient situation. The Critical Thinking Case Studies support our belief that the science of nursing and related health professions is not black and white. In many instances, it includes shades of gray, such as in the areas of genetic testing, resuscitation, cultural issues, end-of-life care, and quality of life. Revised evidence-based practice boxes include the latest knowledge crucial for nurses to practice using quality and safety competencies. Competencies included in the evidence-based practice boxes are designed specifically for prelicensed nurses and are from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses website. This text also serves as a reference manual for practicing nurses. The latest recommendations have been included from authoritative organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Institute of Medicine, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the American Pain Society, the American Nurses Association, and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates and Practitioners. To expand the universe of available information, websites and e-mail addresses have been included for hundreds of organizations and other educational resources.
