Overview

CREATING NURSING'S FUTURE: ISSUES, OPPORTUNITIES, AND CHALLENGES examines the issues and trends which students and nurses face in future practice. An expert panel of nursing leaders in advance practice, education, research, and administration contributed to this up-to-date, comprehensive and thought-provoking text. Chapters are organized into six sections: Nursing in Society; The Future of Practice and Education; Administration in the Future; Accountability, Quality, and Control; Nursing's Scientific Future; and Expanding the Boundaries.
  • Includes two scenarios in each chapter that focus on future directions in nursing and present the probable and preferable future of the specific issue.
  • Written by an expert panel of nursing leaders in the areas of advance practice, education, research, and administration.
  • Includes discussion questions at the end of every chapter which are designed to stimulate creative thinking by placing the students in a situation where they must create the solution and determine the steps needed to prepare for the future.
  • Includes important information on the use of technology as it relates to the future of nursing practice and education.
  • Focuses on key areas such as alternative and complementary health care and multicultural nursing to help expand the boundaries of nursing practice into the future.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Gayle M. Timmerman, PhD, RN (University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing)
Description: This book addresses a wide variety of issues in nursing and healthcare, providing "a snapshot of the present and a vision of the future."
Purpose: The purpose is to increase awareness regarding the issues affecting nurses, with the emphasis on exploring opportunities so that a desired future can be created. This book is based on the conceptual framework of futurists Hancock and Bezold in which comparison of the probable future with that of the preferred future enables the development of strategies to achieve what is desired.
Audience: The intended audience is nurses and nursing students. The content is appropriate for both audiences, but is best suited for those who are already familiar with the basics of professional issues in nursing. It would need to be used with a more basic text if included in an introductory professional socialization course.
Features: The chapters address issues in nursing and society, practice and education, administration, professional accountability, and research. Unique features include the futuristic conceptual framework, the expertise of the multiple authors, and useful appendixes that provide further resources.
Assessment: This book provides a proactive (rather than reactive) approach that can be used to guide the future of the nursing profession. The futuristic focus of the book provides a unique perspective that does not replicate the many other available books that discuss important nursing issues. It is a must read for nurses in leadership positions who can potentially influence the future.
