Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen M Woodruff, DNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This book provides comprehensive information for graduate nursing curriculum incorporating the Master's Essentials of 2012 and the Doctoral Essentials of 2006. This second edition was created in response to the evolution of the doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's (AACN) recently revised Essentials of Master's Education for Advanced Practice Nursing (2011).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide comprehensive information on the core curriculum content requirements of the MSN and DNP Essentials. Due to program credit limits, it may be important to incorporate these role competencies and broad content areas in courses for all advanced practice nursing roles. The authors do an excellent job in achieving their goals.
Audience: The audience includes nurses in a variety of advanced practice nursing roles, including nurse executives, nurse educators, and entrepreneurs, as well as nurses providing direct clinical care. The editors have done an excellent job of compiling selected chapters from existing books in the Jones & Bartlett Learning collection to create a unique reference that allowed experts in each of the areas to be included in the final work.
Features: The book is organized into six sections that should be addressed in order: professional roles for the advanced practice nurse; healthcare delivery system and health policy for advanced practice core knowledge; quality, safety, and information systems for advanced practice; theoretical foundations, research, and evidence-based practice; the role of race, culture, ethics, and advocacy in advanced practice nursing; and leadership and role transition for advanced practice nurses. The book also presents current changes in the national healthcare agenda and how this will affect advanced practice nurses.
Assessment: The goal of this resource is to provide core knowledge that all nurses in advanced practice roles require regardless of their specialty. It is expected that graduate nurses will continue to grow their practice and roles as they enter into their specialty areas. The book draws from the editors' extensive experience. The book also clarifies the terminology of advanced practice nursing as any nurse who holds a master's degree or higher in nursing and whose role influences the healthcare outcomes for individuals or populations either through direct patient care, management, healthcare organizations, or health policy. This revised edition is essential due to the changes occurring in healthcare in the United States.
