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.
