Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: Authors discuss the major issues (nursing ideas) facing nursing today though a historical, theoretical, and professional lens in this book.
Purpose: The goal of the editors is to "guide students in their appreciation and understanding of the contextual nature of nursing knowledge and practice."
Audience: This book would be an appropriate text for undergraduates and graduate students on the history of nursing's development and the challenges nursing has had and will encounter on its journey to professionalism.
Features: The book's 40 chapters are divided into three sections — Weaving Critical Threads Through Nursing Ideas, Application of the Scholarship of Nursing Ideas, and Advancing the Profession. Major topics in the first section include the impact of gender, race, culture, community, and environment on nursing as a profession. In section 2, fundamental patterns of knowing and other philosophical and theoretical views are discussed in relation to the development of nursing ideas. In the final section, professionalism and nursing is discussed in the context of higher education, theory and knowledge development, ethical codes, and professional journals.
Assessment: This book covers a variety of nursing ideas, many of them controversial. It would be very useful for class or online discussion related to these nursing issues (ideas). The chapters are fairly short and to the point, so students could provide other readings on the topics to enhance knowledge and promote further discussion. Practicing nurses could also gain from this book since the ideas and issues have an enormous impact on practice and healthcare today and for the future.
