The book features multiple contributors from a variety of clinical, academic and leadership roles as well as viewpoints on many aspects of care from students, parents and most importantly, children. The book signposts the student to consider critical aspects of practice throughout such as ‘safeguarding stop points’, ‘what’s the evidence?’ boxes and links to critical thinking or reflection.
Fantastic evidence-base on the mechanisms of child biology, physiology, assessing children, and all the different childhood illness. They talk about community care, law, policy, and there’s also a section about caring for children with complex or high-needs, or critically ill children.

This is a very comprehensive text that covers all the key aspects of children and young adult nursing, and would be particularly useful for nursing students, across all fields of nursing, not just children's nursing.
Excellent resource for both nursing students and qualified nurses. Plenty of information presented in a very accessible format. Highly recommended
An excellent comprehensive text for pre reg nursing students. Easy to read and well written.
This is an excellent textbook, both for students studying children's nursing and for students studying other fields of nursing. It covers a wide range of issues, including the principles of nursing children and young people; child and infant development; caring for infants and children with acute care needs; caring for children and young people with complex and high dependency needs and the role of the professional children's nurse. The authors have also developed some useful online learning tools to supplement the textbook. A must read for every children's nurse.
