A high level of research has gone into developing and refining the key features for this edition, such as updated voices and implementing new NMC standards.

From looking at the table of contents alone, I can tell that this book will be filled with a lot of resourceful information that will assist students in each field of children's nursing. Each section has a clear heading that indicates where to locate the necessary information, as well as multiple subheadings that further divide the topic.
