Fetal and Neonatal Pharmacology for the Advanced Practice Nurse
"This book is a rare find for APRNs, especially PNPs and NNPs, and provides excellent APRN collaboration instances in everyday clinical and academic settings. The chapters are written by interprofessional healthcare providers, such as NNPs and PharmDs, and provide information and practice guidelines from a collaborative perspective. "

This is the first text to address fetal and neonatal pharmacology for the APN and nursing student. With a strong focus on interprofessional collaboration, it delivers core pharmacologic concepts and practice guidelines in a clear, systematic manner for ease of use. This resource reflects real-word scenarios as it discusses perinatal and intrapartum pharmacologic therapies and their implications for fetuses and neonates. It covers such postnatal pharmacology considerations as human milk and maternal drug addiction. A table including 100 of the most commonly used medications prescribed in the NICU serves as a quick reference for both academic and clinical settings.
The text explores the genesis, evolution, and current knowledge surrounding pharmacologic therapies used to treat common problems afflicting preterm and critically ill neonates. Chapters, written by interprofessional teams, include illustrations and concept maps of key content--promoting active learning for visual and tactile learners, learning objectives, and discussion questions. The text meets the accreditation requirements for MSN and DNP programs offering the 3P courses to neonatal and pediatric NP students, Clinical Nurse Specialist students, and midwifery students.
