From the Foreword:

At a time when all of the world's talent must be tapped to provide the top-notch quality of health care that we all need and deserve, no profession can afford to ignore any of its brightest and best. Gender neutrality in nursing must be attained; our future patients deserve it. Thankfully this book will help.
