In today’s educational climate, with reduced class time being devoted to specialty courses like pediatric nursing, it is particularly
important for nursing educators to focus on key concepts, rather than attempting to cover everything within a specific topic.
Essentials of Pediatric Nursing was written to direct students to an understanding of critical concepts related to pediatric nursing.
The book builds upon the student’s prior knowledge base. As simpler and broader concepts are mastered first, the students are then
able to progress to problem solving in more complex situations. The concepts-based approach to nursing education is time-efficient
for nursing educators and fosters the development of critical thinking skills in student nurses.
The main objectives of the second edition of Essentials of Pediatric Nursing are to provide student nurses with the basis needed
for sound nursing care of children and the ability to think critically within various health care environments. The book covers a broad
scope of topics, placing emphasis on common issues and pediatric-specific content, including atraumatic care. The text presents the
important differences when caring for children as compared to caring for adults. Rather than repeating medical-surgical content that
the student has already mastered, the text builds upon that knowledge base. This approach is supported by many of the book’s
features, such as the reoccurring feature Thinking About Development. A nursing process approach provides relevant information in a
concise and nonredundant manner. In Unit 4, specific nursing process content is discussed as appropriate for a given disorder.
