This text is designed to promote critical thinking in nursing care for infants, children, and adolescents in hospitals and the community. Evidence-based Pediatric Nursing supports students to discover and synthesize new knowledge through the use of current evidence-based findings. This knowledge promotes collaboration with children, families, and other members of the health care team to create a holistic plan of care. It views health promotion and health maintenance interventions as an essential, continuous process that begins in pregnancy and develops throughout the lifecycle, regardless of pathology. This text also provides an introduction to evidence-based research to promote a research-practice connection to guide nursing practice.

This text uses the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and Healthy People 2020 recommendations to guide nursing interventions. In addition, the Institute of Medicine and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies give context to the evidence-based interventions. This text takes a visual approach with photographs, charts, and illustrations to reinforce concepts. After briefly introducing the physiologic basis for each nursing problem, it progresses through the steps of the nursing process, clearly delineating the role of the pediatric nurse. From normal growth and development, medication administration, and nutrition to an analysis of pathology that guides nursing and medical management of pediatric diseases and conditions—and chapter summaries emphasize important concepts.

The text also comes with a code in the front of each new book that unlocks instructor and student resources. There are 300 questions to test student learning and further experience with NCLEX-style questions.

Sondae Stevens

Sondae Stevens graduated from the University of California at Berkeley as an Integrative Biology major and Conservation Resource Studies minor. She enhanced her understanding of the relationship between the human body and the physical environment as a labor support doula, a postpartum doula, and a midwife assistant. She continued her education, went to DePaul University, and obtained her MS in Nursing. Nursing school afforded her the perfect environment to link her clinical experiences, the mother-baby continuum, and evidence-based practice research.

As a nurse, she worked in an Adult Surgical Intensive Care Unit, General Pediatrics, Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, and in Critical Care Home Health nursing. It was the experience of being a home health nurse that made her realize the importance of health promotion. Health promotion is the most effective tool to promote the growth of the developing baby as well as promoting health habits that can become lifestyles.

Her passion for the mother-baby dyad led her to teach Pediatric and Obstetric clinical rotations as an adjunct professor at City Colleges of Chicago, and later led her to become a tenured Assistant Professor and Certified Nurse Educator (CNE).

Evidence-based Pediatric Nursing and  Evidence-based Obstetric Nursing came from a need to teach basic nursing care while incorporating research from an ever-changing health care system. These textbooks attempt to bridge the gap between clinical practice and evidence-based bedside nursing interventions for all nursing students and nurses. There is a strong focus on a preventative lifestyle for mothers and babies as nurses can be instrumental in the promotion of wellness. When she isn’t writing textbooks or teaching in the classroom, she is working on a fiction series she hopes to publish.
