Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Ellen Wurzbach, RN, MSN, PhD (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This community health nursing text from the United Kingdom consists of readings that discuss the political, ethical, and social issues underlying community health nursing in that country.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide practitioners and students with the opportunity of considering and exploring principles that not only inform current community health nursing practice, but also the future development of practice in the U.K. These are worthy objectives and the authors met the objectives.
Audience: The book is targeted at community health nurse practitioners and students in the U.K. The authors' goal was for nurses in community health from other countries to read and understand it as well. Although I am unfamiliar with the authors, their credentials would seem to make them credible.
Features: The book contains very few illustrations and is very informationally dense. The references are current and pertinent to the U.K. The appearance of the book is appropriate and colorful. The unique feature of the book is the in-depth discussion of community health nursing in the U.K.
Assessment: This community health nursing text is appropriately written for U.K. nurse practitioners and students. It might also be appropriate for an international studies in nursing courses in the U.S. It would not be an appropriate basic community health nursing text for undergraduate nursing students or practitioners in the U.S. The terminology is unfamiliar, many acronyms are used, and both the structure and the content of community health nursing in the U.K. and the U.S. differ from one another. I would recommend it to U.S. practitioners and students who are interested in community health in the U.K. with the caution that it may be difficult to understand since it is culture specific.
