Delivering health care to rural populations in comparison to urban populations requires unique considerations due to the geographic, social and cultural differences that must be taken into consideration. These volumes provide a basis for anticipating issues and options confronting rural nurses in the future. The second volume discusses: minority populations such as migrant women, black elderly, and the homeless; interdisciplinary models of health care delivery; and health care issues and nursing roles. A concluding chapter considers the challenges of rural nursing reseach. Addressing a wide range of concerns of interest to rural nurses, Rural Nursing Volumes One and Two make a much-needed contribution to the literature of the field.
