F.A. Davis Company has been recognized by the American Journal of Nursing as the publisher of two of the 2013 Book-of-the-Year Award winners in two different categories.

“We are honored that AJN has recognized the contributions of these authors to the education of the next generation of nursing students and to the professional development of the field,” said Jean Rodenberger, Editor-in-Chief, Nursing. “These two titles reflect models of learning that are changing how nursing is taught and how students are learning in today’s time pressed environments. We congratulate each of the authors on their accomplishments and thank them for their dedication to sharing their knowledge and experience with nursing students, educators, and clinicians.”

Maternal-Newborn Nursing Care
Best Evidence-Based Practices
By Jamille Nagtalon-Ramos, MSN, CRNP
ISBN-13: 978-0-8036-2246-3
$34.95 (US) | $38.50 (CAN)
(Also available as an e-Edition.)

“This book is a user-friendly resource for maternal–newborn nurses, especially those who are new to the specialty. It’s ideal because it’s truly hands-on; it’s light and fits in a scrub pocket (I tried it!). Chapters are clearly defined and divided by tabs that make it easy to find a topic. Information is presented succinctly in outline form and each chapter includes tables, photos, and illustrations. It’s written clearly and doesn’t overuse medical terminology. Included are tools on commonly used medications, metric and newborn weight conversions, and simple English–Spanish translations.” —AJN

Category: Psychiatric and Mental-Health Nursing
PsychNotes
Clinical Pocket Guide, 4th Edition
By Darlene D. Pedersen, MSN, APRN, PMHCNS
ISBN-13: 978-0-8036-3922-5
$29.95 (US) | $32.95 (CAN)
(Also available as an e-Edition.)

“This small, well-organized book is the most clinically useful and complete resource that I use in my practice—and I use it often! Its early incorporation of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) content is invaluable. Diagnostic criteria and psychotropic medication layouts are exceptional, and make complex clinical work a bit easier.” —AJN
These titles are available at bookstores or directly from F.A. Davis Company.
