Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member co-edits book for teens with special needs

(NEWARK, N.J., April 23, 2007) -- A Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member has co-edited a book that examines the transition children with special health care needs and disabilities face when they move from pediatric care to adult health care.

Promoting Health Care Transitions for Adolescents with Special Health Care Needs and Disabilities, co-edited by Wendy M.
