Overview

ISSUES AND TRENDS IN NURSING addresses the evolution, current status, and future direction of nursing education and practice. It presents historical, political, legal, ethical, and cultural underpinnings and integrates these themes through a comprehensive scope of issues affecting the nursing profession. The book's strengths include its readability, range of topics, and quality of coverage of the history of nursing, economics of health care, social policy and health care delivery, urban and rural nursing, international nursing, and political awareness. The third edition features a new chapter on computers in nursing, expanded coverage of the realities of managed care and recent changes, and expanded coverage of practical information such as job seeking, time management, networking, and strategies for avoiding burnout. New Critical Thinking activities have been added to make the book more interactive and engaging. A more inviting design makes the book more visually interesting.

• Integrates various factors that influence the delivery of health care in many different settings, including rural, urban and international to prepare the student for practice in a range of settings.
• Discusses critical issues that affect nurses today and in the future to assist students in preparing for future practice.
• Presents viewpoints of well-known contributors to encourage consideration of different perspectives.
• Includes chapter-opening objectives to pique students' interest and set the context of material to follow.
• Includes addresses of nursing organizations and the state boards of nursing in the appendices, providing important contact information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Ellen Wurzbach, RN, MSN, PhD (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This is the third edition of a nursing issues and trends textbook.
Purpose: The primary goal of the text is to provide the most current, most relevant information available on contemporary issues and trends that will affect all areas of nursing practice in the years to come. This is a worthy goal and the author meets it admirably.
Audience: The book is written for undergraduate nursing students; however, it is written at a very high level and therefore would also meet the needs of graduate students and nursing practitioners who need an overview of issues and trends in nursing.
Features: The most notable feature of the book is the comprehensive coverage it gives to chapter topics. Each chapter places the issue or trend being discussed into historical perspective and then develops the topic from historical to contemporary. The references are current, historical, and pertinent. The table of contents is comprehensive and helpful. The book is somewhat under illustrated, but given the topics, illustrations may not be that necessary. The appearance of the book is appropriate.
Assessment: Overall, this is an excellent issues and trends text. It is very thorough in its treatment of each topic. My only concern is that some chapters are written at a very high level. It would definitely meet the needs of graduate students or practitioners looking for an overview of current issues and trends in nursing, but undergraduate students might require guidance through some sections. I was very impressed with this textbook and would definitely recommend purchase by graduate students, senior-level undergraduate students, practitioners, and nursing libraries.
