Although I used an older eddition of this book during my training it was definantly like a bible and I used it for practically evey module. I would recommend it to all paediatric nursing students!

HASH(0xa17831bc) out of 5 stars Worst textbook I have ever been subjected to 10 May 2013
By D. Pulaski - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First let me say that if you are in a nursing program that uses this textbook, I realize you don't have a choice in the matter and as such, book reviews are of limited utility. That said, I have to be honest and say that this text book is simply horrible. I survived my pediatric nursing course and got a good grade, but it was in spite of this torturous textbook, which I am pleased to now be able to say I will never have to look at again.

Yes, the textbook contains a tremendous wealth of accurate, raw information. But that's the problem also. It's RAW. The organization of the text is terrible, finding the relevant critical info you actually need is nearly impossible, and it is pure torture to try to read. The authors do not appear to understand the concepts of summarization, highlighting, and organization. Virtually every page is a monolithic wall of seemingly randomized, excessively verbose, dry text.

If you have to use this textbook, try to get as much as you can out of your lectures and whatever other learning materials are offered by your professors, because this text is mostly useless.

HASH(0xa19bf5fc) out of 5 stars instructors look elsewhere 15 Feb. 2012
By mnhockeyguy - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a BSN student I really enjoy learning. I have done well in every class up until now and I believe that the text has a lot to do with it. Although I must admit that I have never been excited about pediatric nursing this book makes it even more difficult for me to get through the class. I have never felt like I have wasted so much time in my life reading a textbook. We are assigned a tremendous amount of reading material from this book and I know why, because for the amount of words that the author uses to get their point across very little is actually said and a lot of it seems to be opinion based. I am sorry but a lot of this book is common sense, "don't leave boiling water in a place where a toddler can reach..." The repetitiveness is what really gets to me though. In the nursing program as many of you know, time is critical and should not be wasted, yet the authors of this book feel it is necessary to repeat the same information and most of it is what I call "fluff." "When a toddler goes to the bathroom on their own make sure to provide emotional support..." They never tell you what emotional support means, but at least it sounds good, and to me is common sense. This seems like I may be splitting hairs here but this is only one of numerous examples that is evident throughout this book. The valuable information in this book is so diluted and I get so frustrated with the amount of reading necessary to get so little information. Although this book is a VERY comprehensive book and may be good as reference material, it does not seem to be written with students in mind. If you are an instructor looking for a valuable text that you want your students to benefit from I would look elsewhere.

HASH(0xa15c315c) out of 5 stars Fantastic book for pediatric nurses! 30 May 2012
By Ngray223 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing. It was a required textbook for nursing school and one of the only books I ended up keeping after graduation. I refer to it all the time and find myself reading the whole chapter just because of how interesting the subject matter is and how well the book is written. If you are in your pediatric clinical rotation or if you have any interest in pediatric nursing I highly recommend this book!
HASH(0xa194a420) out of 5 stars Not impressed at all 16 May 2013
By R. Wiegard - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is MASSIVE! I believe this textbook could be of better value if it is more concise. There is a lot of repeating information in this book that can be parred down. It's too wordy and makes it difficult to read. However, I have found out that this textbook is used as the gold standard when formulating test questions for the pediatric ATI test, which is probably why my nursing program has elected to use this book. I ended up scoring a Level 3 on my ATI test, but not from using this book, rather it was studying the ATI test book. My advice to the publishers is to do some major re-editing and streamline this book.
HASH(0xa15b47c8) out of 5 stars big, thick textbook 12 Jan. 2013
By Deborah - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was required for my peds nursing class. It is very informative, although it is pretty long. I cannot compare it to other peds texts because it is the only peds text I've used, but it met my needs. It doesn't have NCLEX style questions at the end of each chapter; so adding review questions would definitely be an improvement that I would hope will be added to future editions.
