Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jayalakshmi Jambunathan, PhD, MSN, MA, BSN, BSc (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This fourth edition provides an overview and synthesis of concepts basic to the development of professional practitioners. The book is organized into four sections addressing: the nature of the profession and the dynamics of professional development; the theoretical bases of professional nursing; concepts relevant to the changing healthcare context; and the components and roles of professional nursing.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a useful resource to all professional nursing education programs in the educational development of students at multiple points in first degree professional programs, to provide a professional review with a consistent framework for the beginning graduate student from varied baccalaureate nursing programs, and to facilitate resocialization in "second step" programs.
Audience: The intended audience is the baccalaureate student, the upper division RN baccalaureate student, the beginning graduate student, and the practicing nurse. The author and contributors are credible authorities on the subject, demonstrating their knowledge through integration and synthesis of current ideas and values about the role of professional nurses in the context of a changing healthcare delivery system.
Features: The book is well organized with clear objectives for each chapter, which include brief clinical vignettes, a second type color, bulleted or numbered lists, generous utilization of tables, and "thought questions" at the end of each chapter. Although the book is written as an integrated text with a common framework, each chapter can be read independently of the others. It is well documented with current and seminal sources. The overall appearance is pleasing.
Assessment: The author has deftly crafted and revised this much needed book, emphasizing the "absolute necessity" for the profession of nursing to practice from its own body of knowledge. All chapters from the previous edition have been updated. Two new chapters, "Health Care Policy" and "Management of Client Care" (emphasizing intrapersonal and interpersonal processes) have been added. Four chapters have been revised: the chapter on "Research Process" emphasizes research utilization; the chapter on "Processes of Professional Nursing" includes cognitive, interpersonal, and patterning processes; the "Health Process" chapter includes world views of health and health promotion, protection, and patterning; and the changing healthcare context section includes healthcare delivery systems. I would definitely recommend purchase of the book by undergraduate nursing students, beginning graduate students, nurse educators, and reference libraries.
