The Student Workbook and Resource Guide for Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health Across the Lifespan can assist in that effort by providing a concise, up-to-date review of maternal-newborn and women's health nursing care theoretical content, which emphasizes application of critical thinking in clinical and community-based maternity settings. Women's health issues are also explored.
All major maternity texts include content related to the human reproductive system and to the antepartum, intrapartum, postpartum, and neonatal periods, although the sequences of content may vary. This workbook can be used with most of the major maternity nursing texts, no matter what the organization. It is specifically designed to be used with Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health Across the Lifespan.
Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health: Across the Lifespan is a family-focused text that covers maternal-newborn nursing and women’s health topics with special attention to evidence-based practice, cultural competence, critical thinking, professionalism, patient education, and home/community care. Relatable and engaging, the text is built upon the philosophy that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes, and that family members are partners in care. The holistic approach helps readers develop their clinical-reasoning skills, and prepare to practice nursing in an ever-changing healthcare environment.
This workbook is appropriate for all types of nursing programs. Nurses involved in refresher courses or just entering this specialty area will also find it extremely helpful. Practicing nurses can find it helpful, too, especially in assessment and critical clinical decision making.
