Thoroughly updated and revised, this new edition of Rural Nursing provides the knowledge, skills, and insight nurses must acquire to meet the unique needs of rural populations.

With contributors from the United States, Canada, and Australia, this new edition presents an expanded view of how nurses can help make large-scale health care improvements in rural settings. Nurses will learn how to encourage changes in the health behaviors of rural people, pursue evidence-based practice and research, and create initiatives for improved education, practice, and policy.

New and expanded topics include:

  • Rural male caregivers
  • Perinatal experiences of rural women
  • Complementary therapy and health literacy in rural dwellers
  • Childhood obesity and environmental risk reduction for rural children
  • Rural public health in Native American communities
