Doody's Review Service recently reviewed Nursing Care of the Pediatric Surgical Patient, Third Edition by Nancy Tkacz Browne, Laura M. Flanigan, Carmel A. McComiskey, and Pam Pieper. According to reviewer Robert M Arensman, MD at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine,
"This book is essential for all nurses in this country or internationally who have as their primary task the nursing care of children, especially those who have undergone surgical procedures. The editors and contributors are experienced pediatric surgical nurses from some of the most respected centers in North America. Most of them have had leadership positions in their institutions, national pediatric surgery nursing, or the APSNA. The care and precision that went into the preparation of this third edition...justify replacement of earlier editions."
