About the Author

Michele Davidson

[COPY TO COME for Michele Davidson]

 

Marcia L. London

Marcia L. London has been able to combine her two greatest passions by being both a nurse caring for children and families and a teacher for almost 35 years. She received her B.S.N. and school nurse certificate from Plattsburgh State University in Plattsburgh, New York. After graduation, she began her nursing career as a pediatric nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City then moved to Pittsburgh, where she began her teaching career. Mrs. London accepted a faculty position at Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital Affiliate Program and received her M.S.N. in pediatrics as a clinical nurse specialist from the University of Pittsburgh. Mrs. London began teaching at Beth-El School of Nursing and Health Science in 1974 after opening the first intensive care nursery at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs. She has served in many administrative and faculty positions at Beth-El, including coordinator for nursing care of children for 32 years. Mrs. London maintains her clinical skills working in an urgent care and after-hours clinic and doing undergraduate pediatric clinical supervision. She obtained her postmaster’s neonatal nurse practitioner certificate in 1983 and subsequently developed the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program and the master’s NNP program at Beth-El. She is active nationally in neonatal nursing and was involved in the development of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Educational Program Guidelines. She has contributed 5 chapters to various neonatal nursing texts. Mrs. London is active in nurse practitioner education in general. She was involved in the revision of the Core Competency for Nurse Practitioners and Curriculum Guidelines for Nurse Practitioner Education, as a member of the Education Committee of the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties and participated as part of the Core Competency Validation Expert Panel. Mrs. London has also pursued her interest in college student learning by taking doctoral classes in  higher education administration and adult learning at the University of Denver in Colorado. She feels fortunate to be involved in the education of her future colleagues. Her teaching philosophy is that, with support, students can achieve more than they may initially believe they are capable of achieving. Mrs. London and her husband have two sons and one dog (Reilly, daughter by proxy). Her two sons, Craig and Matthew, are involved in computer informatics, and media arts and animation and are more than willing to give Mom helpful hints.

 

Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig

Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig received her B.S. from the College of Saint Teresa in Winona, Minnesota. After graduation, she worked as a pediatric nurse before joining the U.S. Air Force. After completing her tour of duty, Dr. Ladewig relocated at Florida, where she accepted a faculty position at Florida State University. There she embraced teaching as her calling. Over the years, she taught at several schools of nursing while earning her M.S.N. in maternal-newborn nursing from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and her Ph.D. in higher education administration from the University of Denver in Colorado. In addition, she became a women’s health nurse practitioner and maintained a part-time clinical practice. In 1988 Dr. Ladewig became the first director of the nursing program at Regis College in Denver and., in 1991, when the college became Regis University, she became dean of the Rueckert-Hartman School for Health Professions. Under her guidance, the Department of Nursing has added a graduate program and the School  has added three departments: the Department of Physical Therapy, the Department of Health Services Administration and Management, and the Department of Health Care Ethics. Dr. Ladewig feels that teaching others to be excellent, caring nurses gives her the best of all worlds because it keeps her in touch with the profession she loves and enables her to help shape the future of the nursing profession. When not at work or writing textbooks, Pat and her husband, Tim, enjoy skiing, baseball games, and traveling. However their greatest pleasure comes from their family: son Ryan, his wife, Amanda, and grandson Reed; and son, Erik, his wife Kedri, and granddaughter Emma.

This text is well written and presented. It is clear, organized, and generally easy to read without boring me to tears. I bought the 8th ed. even though my course assigned the 9th, because this version is so cheap it's practically free. I've looked at the 9th ed. that all my classmates bought (and paid $90+) and the two are so similar that the new version is most certainly not worth the extra expense. Just make sure you check the subjects on the chapters in your syllabus, as some do not match up with the 9th ed.

I highly recommend you buy this version in place of the new one!

While this text is a core for many parent-child health nursing courses and does have some great information, it's greatest drawback is the index. Yes, the index. The index is poorly designed such that students often cannot find the particular subject matter they are searching for. Although this appears to be a minor concern, after wasted hours at failed attempts to locate many different items, this issue is both frustrating and a drain on nursing students' precious resource - time.

This text has excellent information, but does not tell you where to find. Once you finally find it, it may be in two different chapters and slightly different in each. The index does not offer any assistance, only guessing games as to which word to use to look up the topic of choice.

This book is an excellent source of information when it comes to OB. I am very pleased with how the content is easy to understand. The pictures are a great source of information. This by far is the best book a student can purchase for nursing school in your OB rotation. This book went right along on how the teacher explained it to us. Thanks to OLDs for coming up with such a great OB book. Keep up the good work. Students need something that is easy to relate to and understand. This is the book you would want to purchase.
Thanks again,
Rosie Holmes

The work book is a blue print of what you need to focus on. It provides a clearer and objective review extremely useful to comprehend what is needed for your training and daily experiences as a nurse student.
I highly reccomend it.

I bought this book because It was required for my reading assignments and I needed it right away for getting information in order to do an assignment. I trusted the service and I chose the traditional speed even though it says that they will mail out the item within one to seven working days. They sent my item right the next working day and got my book before the week was over. I was really glad. About the information in the book, what can I say, this book is the main source where I get the information for my class assignments, so it is great because I don't have to buy other extra books. Overall it is a great book with a lot of important information.

I found several errors and I really ended up not using the workbook much. I enjoyed the accompanying textbook but I really would recommend the workbook save your money! It was a required book for our class and I enjoy workbooks and clinical guides that go with textbooks because they summarize information or help you focus on the important parts of chapters but this workbook was more confusing and didn't seem to flow well with the textbook. Textbook is good workbook not really worth the money.
