An excellent resource for graduate nursing students in master's and doctoral programs!
Philosophical and Theoretical Perspectives for Advanced Nursing Practice focuses on the theoretical and philosophical perspectives necessary to guide advanced nursing practice. The expertly written chapters are diverse in content and emphasize evidence-based practice, values, person-centered care and global perspectives, and explores the interrelationships between theory, practice, and research.
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN(University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh) Description: "This is a compilation of reprinted philosophical and theoretical articles written by 46 nursing scholars and theorists. Purpose: "The purpose is to promote reflective dialogue among graduate students and advanced practice nurses about the philosophical and theoretical perspectives that guide nursing practice. Audience: The audience includes graduate nursing students in master's and doctoral programs in nursing. Features: The 31 chapters are grouped into six units: The Nursing Discipline and the Development of Nursing Knowledge; Nursing Science in the New Millennium; Nursing's Metaparadigm: Conceptualizations of Health and Nursing; Nursing's Metaparadigm: Person and Environment; Contemporary Perspectives of Nursing Science; and Interrelationships among Nursing Theory, Research, and Practice. The book has been completely updated and includes 11 new chapters, with added emphasis on evidence, values, person-centered care, and global perspectives. Assessment: "This thought stimulating book helps the advanced practice student or nurse to ponder the unique discipline of nursing and the theories that guide advanced practice. I have used earlier editions with master's students and have found the book to be an excellent resource. This updated edited shows the progress nursing has made in theory development and in being recognized as a legitimate profession. As with many other theory texts, it will challenge students to think conceptually and reflectively. The list of contributing authors is exemplary. "

Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh) Description: This is a compilation of seminal and contemporary philosophical and theoretical articles in nursing with an emphasis on evidence-based practice and global perspectives. Purpose: The purpose is to help graduate students and advanced practice nurses more clearly understand nursing theory and develop their own perspectives on nursing care through the application of theory. Audience: The audience includes graduate nursing students, both master's and doctoral, as well as nurses practicing at an advanced level. Features: The 31 chapters are divided into five parts that cover the nursing discipline and the development of nursing knowledge; conceptualization of human beings, health, environment, and nursing process; contemporary perspectives on nursing; interrelationship among nursing theory, research, and practice; and the future of advanced nursing practice. This revised edition includes nine new articles including technology in nursing, exploring an alternative metaphor for nursing, and a discussion about what will count as evidence in the future. The introductory sections have been expanded and the book includes new information on evidence-based practice. Assessment: According to the editor, the book is designed to provoke reflective thinking and dialogue about nursing theory and nursing as a profession for students and nurses practicing at an advanced level. I have used earlier editions with master's students and have found it to be an excellent resource. This update shows the progress nursing has made in theory development and in being recognized as a legitimate profession. The new chapters bring the reader into 21st century nursing, and the list of contributing authors is exemplary.
