Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This is an interactive text that includes a journal-type layout, current issue boxes, and integrated questions which focus on the major trends in nursing. Chapters are short and easy to read with cartoons and color pictures interspersed among the narrative. Each chapter includes learning objectives and concludes with critical thinking exercises related to the chapter material.
Purpose: The purpose of this book according to the author is to present "an overview and synthesis of the important issues and trends that are basic to the development of professional nursing and affect nursing both today and into the future", (p. vii).
Audience: This book is intended for undergraduate student nurses for use in an "Introduction to Nursing" course or for an "Issues and Trends" course. Practicing nurses have also reported it useful in their practice.
Features: This book consists of 24 chapters divided into four units: The Growth of Nursing, Making the Transition to Professional, Leading and Managing, and Issues in Delivering Care. Two new chapters have been added to this edition. Chapter 22 "Developments in Current Nursing Practice" discusses new practice roles. Chapter 23, "Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice," discusses key issues in nursing research. The NCLEX exam material has been revised to reflect changes with the exam, and the test-taking skills section has been expanded into its own chapter. An interactive Web site with learning activities is also available to students.
Assessment: The book includes very practical and timely information in a manner that is conducive to student reading levels. Each chapter could stand-alone and be interspersed in various courses across a nursing curriculum. It is very colorful and eye-catching with case studies related to issues in practice, a very complete glossary, and an Appendix listing the major specialty nursing organizations with mailing and E-mail addresses and phone numbers. It would be a great addition to any student's collection.
