This book reflects the ongoing efforts and leadership of nurses to provide guidance and inform pediatric and child health nurses with standards of excellence as it pertains to the commonalities of practice that intersect with all areas of pediatric nursing. The guidelines provide a road map along the continuum to address health and the determinants of health for nurses in all roles providing care to children, teens, and their families. The book is organized around the identified guidelines of nursing excellence. It presents these seventeen guidelines as chapter titles. Each chapter concludes with a case study illustrating use of the guideline. The book will be an invaluable resource for nursing colleagues in clinical practice, education, research, and policy making.
