Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical

of Nursing ( AJN ) 2012 Book of the Year awards, including two for first
place. Elsevier's books were honored in the Gerontologic Nursing, Maternal and

The AJN has published an annual best-of list in nursing publishing since 1969.
The judges who review the submissions in the Book of the Year program are
experts in their categories and select and write reviews of the top three.

Ebersole and Hess' Toward Healthy Aging: Human Needs and Nursing Response ,
edited by Theris A. Touhy and Kathleen Jett (Mosby Elsevier), is the only
gerontological nursing text that follows a wellness-based, holistic approach
to older adult care. This title was awarded first place in the Gerontologic
Nursing category, which recognizes publications focused on understanding older
adults and their complex physical, emotional and social needs in all
healthcare settings.

Nursing Care of Children: Principles and Practice , edited by Susan Rowen,
James, Kristine Ann Nelson and Jean Weiler Ashwill (Saunders Elsevier), takes
on a family focus, and teaches growth, development, and information on the
major body system alterations needed. This title also received first place in
the Maternal and Child Health category, which concerns family health and
pediatrics.

Sheehy's Manual of Emergency Care , by the Emergency Nurses Association,
edited by Belinda B. Hammond and Polly Gerber Zimmermann (Mosby Elsevier),
offers complete, current coverage of the essentials emergency nurses need to
know such as conditions commonly seen in the emergency setting, signs and
symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, developmental considerations, patient
education, and more. This title received third place in the Critical
Care-Emergency Nursing category, which recognizes publications that address
patients in critical care environments and their complex acute and emergent
care needs.

"On behalf of our authors and editors, we are honored that these pioneering
books were chosen to receive the AJN 2012 Book of the Year award," said Loren
Wilson, Vice President and Publisher - Nursing, Elsevier. "These titles and
