Editorial Reviews

Janie Canty-Mitchell
The authors examine contents, dimensions, and themesof professional nursing practice. Contextual issues covered includenursing history, professional socialization, client systems, andhealthcare delivery systems. The dimensions of nursing covered includethe political, economic, and ethical/legal forces that influencenursing practice. Themes of nursing practice address such issues ascaring, health promotion, teaching and learning, critical thinking,nursing research, and information technology. The authorscomprehensively explore issues and concepts that influence professionalpractice and the delivery of nursing care. The complexity and dynamicnature of nursing require this issue-oriented book as part of nursingeducation curricula. The authors met their stated objectives inwriting the book. Originally written for RN-BSN completion students,the book can also be used in foundational courses in basic bachelor ofscience programs and core courses in graduate nursing programs. Theauthors and contributors appear to be credible authorities on thesubject matter. The authors use illustrations that are pertinent toeach chapter's focus. The references are expansive, current, andsuitable for the context, dimensions, and themes presented. Theoverall appearance is appealing, including the color and designs on thebook's cover, the printing, the layout of each chapter, and thegraphics. Unique features not covered in competitive texts are issuesrelating to political influences, economic issues, social and culturaldimensions, and information technology. This is an excellent book tobe used by undergraduate nursing students in traditional and RN-BSNnursing programs. Each chapter features learningobjectives, profilesof nurses in practice that reflect the focus of the chapter, anoverview of key points of each chapter, and critical thinkingexercises. These added features enhance the book's utility to studentsand instructors. I recommend the book for use byeducators.

A text for courses in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, covering the context, dimensions, and themes of professional nursing practice. Chapters on client systems, political and economic forces, and information technology feature learning objectives, opening vignettes, key terms and points, and questions. This second edition omits material on major life themes and basic concepts, and offers new material on nursing history, education, health care delivery issues, critical thinking, research, and the nursing process.

Contextual issues covered include nursing history, professional socialization, client systems, and healthcare delivery systems.

The complexity and dynamic nature of nursing require this issue-oriented book as part of nursing education curricula. The authors met their stated objectives in writing the book.
