Overview

Completely updated in a new sixth edition, this book provides knowledge of the historical, theoretical, ethical, and legal foundations of professional nursing. This resource explores the changing health care system especially related to health care economics, nursing in a culture of violence, and nursing in a culturally and spiritually diverse world. Also included is a chapter on returning to school after already practicing nursing in the field. The book serves as a refresher for topics and issues previously covered in nursing school, but also addresses issues that nurses will face in their new professional practice. This book is an excellent resource for professionals in the nursing field and is specifically designed the transition from RN-to-BSN. These are professionals that have their RN, but are returning for their BSN to further advance their careers.
