Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: Now in its fourth edition, this book continues to be a solid resource on advanced practice nursing and health policy. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide advanced practice nurses with a clear understanding of public policymaking and their role in these efforts.
Audience: The audience is advanced practice nurses regardless of employment setting, graduate students, faculty teaching in graduate programs, and other health professionals and corporate leaders interested in policy.
Features: The book covers the advanced practice nursing role in policymaking and agenda setting. It addresses how policy is made, regulated, implemented, and evaluated. An online component reinforces the material. This edition incorporates case studies to promote critical thinking and analysis and addresses the new Institute of Medicine reports including the Future of Nursing and the policy implications. It also covers communication with stakeholders, informatics and its role in healthcare, and the ethical issues that accompany information systems. The recognition of the need for more nurses to run for political office is discussed, as is the need for them to have a thorough understanding of finance.
Assessment: Many books address health policy for nurses, but over the previous three editions this book has been at the forefront of healthcare policy for advanced practice nurses. It has led the way in presenting difficult, dry material in an understandable yet challenging fashion. The fourth edition brings the content up to date and challenges readers to envision a new global future, one with fewer resources and more technology, that will continue to impact health policy.
