Which Wong's Textbook?
- 0Dec 21, '10 by hiddencatRNWhich is the version that's recommended by this board? I see that there are two different Wong's books and wasn't sure which was better:
Wong's Essentials of Pediatric Nursing, 8th Edition - Marilyn J. Hockenberry & David Wilson. ISBN:9780323053532
Wong's Nursing Care of Infants and Children, 9th Edition - Marilyn J. Hockenberry & David Wilson. ISBN:9780323069120

If there is any way to compare the two in a bookstore, I would take a good look at both. I happen to have the Essentials Wong and as far as I'm concerned, it is good enough. Haven't seen the bigger version.
