Review quote

Wong's Essentials of Pediatric Nursing continues to be a core text book that every children's nursing student should have at their finger tips?to compliment lecture notes and to assist them to integrate theory and practice. Each chapter has 'nursing alerts' and critical?thinking exercises... It holds relevance for all children's nurses and the usefulness of Wong's Essentials of Pediatric Nursing continues long after completion of a programme in children's nursing as a reference guide." Nurse Education in Practice, April 2009show more
