Description 

Written for neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioner students, Fetal and Neonatal Physiology for the Advanced Practice Nurse explores the developmental physiology of premature and term infants and presents common diseases that affect this specialized population. This unique text offers an innovative and engaging approach to learning normal and abnormal physiology to prepare students for their roles as resourceful and informed problem-solvers, caregivers, and health promoters.

Part One introduces core concepts including fetal origins of disease, genetic inheritance patterns, and placental physiology. Part Two investigates each major human body system. Finally, Part Three offers an exploration into the transition to extrauterine life and common challenges for perinatal and neonatal clinicians.

With a multitude of student learning resources and tools, Fetal and Neonatal Physiology for the Advanced Practice Nurse promotes contemplative thinking, understanding, and retention. Every chapter includes learning objectives for guidance, advice from the authors, and a mind map to visualize difficult concepts. Written by junior and senior nurses and physicians, this text embodies the interprofessional approach associated with optimal outcomes. Chapter podcasts and discussion questions are included with the text to actively integrate written content and engage students using multisensory teaching methods.
