9780130994059: Pediatric Nursing: Caring for Children

For courses in Pediatric Nursing.

The most concise, readable pediatric nursing text for use in RN programs. Exceptionally user-friendly and up-to-date, it uses a unique body system approach rather than developmental stages, allowing faculty to teach pediatrics in integrated course or short course without redundancy. This approach also focuses students on nursing care. Features abundant four-color photos and drawings throughout, extensive marginal notes, chapter-opening vignettes and more plus a heavy emphasis on community nursing. This text details the core essentials of pediatric nursing practice while also providing the critical thinking skills necessary for future challenges.

About the Author:

Dr. Jane W. Ball graduated from the Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing, and subsequently received a Bachelor of Science degree from the Johns Hopkins University. She worked in the surgical, pediatric emergency, and, outpatient units of the Johns Hopkins Children's Medical and Surgical Center, first as a staff nurse and then as a pediatric nurse practitioner. This began her career as a pediatric nurse and advocate for children's health needs.

Jane obtained both Master of Public Health and Doctor of Public Health degrees from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health with a focus on maternal and child health. After graduation she became the chief of child health services for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Health. In this capacity she oversaw the state-funded well-child clinics and explored ways to improve education for the state's community health nurses. After relocating to Texas, Jane joined the faculty at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Nursing to teach community pediatrics to registered nurses returning to school for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. During this time she became involved in writing her first textbook, Mosby's Guide to Physical Examination, which is currently in its fifth edition.

After relocating to the Washington, D.C., area, she joined Children's National Medical Center to manage a federal project to teach instructors of emergency medical technicians from all states about the special care children need during an emergency. Exposure to the shortcomings of the emergency medical services system in the late 1980s with regard to pediatric care was, a career-changing event. With federal funding, she developed educational curricula for emergency medical technicians and emergency nurses to help them provide improved care for children. A textbook, entitled Pediatric Emergencies, A Manual for Preh-ospital Providers, was developed from these educational ventures.

For the past 10 years, Jane has managed the federally funded Emergency Medical Services for Children National Resource Center. As executive director, she directs the provision of consultation and resource development for state health agencies, health professionals, families and advocates about successful methods to improve the health care system so that children receive optimal emergency care in all health care settings.

Dr. Ruth Bindler received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Cornell University-New York Hospital School of Nursing in New York. She worked in oncology nursing at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and then moved to Wisconsin and became a public health nurse there in Dane County. Thus began her commitment to work in pediatrics as she visited children and their families at home, and served as a school nurse for several elementary, middle, and high schools. Due to this interest in child health care needs, she earned a Master of Science degree in Child Development from the University of Wisconsin.

A move to Washington State was accompanied by a new job as a faculty member at the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education in Spokane. Ruth has been fortunate to be involved for 28 years in the growth of this nursing education consortium, which is a combination of public and private universities and colleges and is now the Intercollegiate College of Nursing/Washington State University College of Nursing. Presently she teaches the theory course in child health and a course on cultural diversity and health, and serves as lead faculty for the theory and clinical components of child health nursing. Her first professional book, Pediatric Medications, was published in 1981, and she has continued to publish articles and books in the areas of pediatric medications and pediatric health. Special research interests are cardiovascular risk factors and diabetes in children, topics that were the focus of her recent Doctor of Philosophy work in Human Nutrition at Washington State University. Ethnic diversity has been another theme in Ruth's work. She facilitates international and other diversity experiences for students, performs research with culturally diverse children, and works with underserved populations.

Ruth believes that her role as a faculty member has enabled her to learn continually, to foster the development of students in nursing, and to participate fully in the profession of nursing. In addition to teaching, research, publication, and leadership, she enhances her life by service in several professional and community organizations, and through activities with her family.
