Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book provides a critical analysis of the barriers and tensions that exist with nursing's legislated ability to self regulate. The contributing authors discuss the issues related to the changing climate of nurses' work, ways that the realities of contemporary society impact the profession, and challenge nurses to become informed and involved in political action.
Purpose: The initial purpose was to develop a new and different book to serve as a text for nursing issues classes. The authors further hope to stimulate students and nurses to participate in political action on issues that face the profession of nursing. They also hope to challenge Canadian nursing scholars to engage in written dialogue about Canadian nursing issues.
Audience: Although the audience is third and fourth year undergraduate nursing students taking an issues course, the book could also be a resource for related courses and a reference for graduate students and practicing nurses.
Features: "The book's 26 chapters are grouped into five parts: Nurses, Nursing, and the Health Care System; Regulatory Power; Nursing Knowledge: How We Come to Know What We Know; Workplace Realities; and Societal Issues: Challenges for Nursing Practice. Critical questions and objectives begin each chapter and reflective questions appear at the end of each chapter. In addition, online resources are identified that relate to each chapter's material. One new chapter looks at spirituality and spiritual care and the journey exploring human suffering and faith traditions. "
Assessment: The contributing authors are from several Canadian provinces as well as from Australia, England, Germany, and the United States, therefore presenting a wealth of views on nursing issues. This well written book targets nursing issues that are pertinent not only for Canada, but also for the United States and other developed countries.
