Overview

Offering a comprehensive overview of the changing roles of nurses today, this ninth volume in the Series on Nursing Administration explores the rapidly expanding definitions of nursing and nursing activities. Beginning with conceptual and ethical discussions of nursing roles, the book examines the parts nurses have begun to play as entrepreneurs, policy analysts and advocates, and information specialists. Nursing Roles also considers how nurses may be expected to interact with unlicensed assistive personnel, including working with indigenous health workers. Further chapters delve into the role implications of long-term care and the changing health care system and discusses the emerging roles advanced by practice nurses, clinical nurse specialists, and acute care nurse practitioners. By presenting a broad vision of the evolution not only of nursing but also of the environment in which nurses will be expected to perform, the book serves as an excellent guide for the advanced student and the clinician in preparing for the future challenges and potential rewards of the nursing profession. This volume charts the evolution of nursing roles, examining new directions as well as reconfigurations of traditional roles. Nursing Roles will be of special interest to students, professionals, and academics in nursing and nursing administration.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Stephanie S. Mazur
This is the ninth book in a yearly series published to assist nursing administrators to remain in the forefront of knowledge of current and emerging issues. This book reviews nursing roles and how they are changing to adapt to the managed care environment. The authors present some new ideas for nursing and also compare the clinical nurse specialist and the advanced practice nurse. The purpose of the book is to apprise nurse administrators of roles that effectively maximize nursing resources. In today's managed care environment, it is critical that all resources are appropriately utilized. The book devotes a chapter to each of the currently identified roles of the registered nurse. It does not, however, offer a lot of new information about the roles. According to the authors, the book is written for nursing administrators and nursing administration faculty. However, it is my opinion that the book will be better used as a course text rather than a reference for nursing administrators. The authors are credible authorities on nursing roles. The book has minimal features to draw the reader into the book. There are few illustrations, but those that are included are pertinent and easy to interpret. The book is plain in appearance and the print is small. There are extensive references, but many are from 1990 or earlier. An author index is included. The book does not offer a wealth of new ideas for current nursing administrators. Most of the roles are discussed in general terms. The book does have value as a course text to stimulate class discussions around the various nursing roles. It also is a valuable library reference, because it is a concise reference for a comparison of changing roles forthe professional nurse.
