SHRINKWRAPPED MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE: SHIPS FROM USA: Description: 376 Pages: Springer Publishing Company; 2 edition (November 8, 2005): The second edition of Rural Nursing: ... Concepts, Theory and Practice is an important contribution to rural nursing theory. In it, the authors move toward explanatory theory as they critically examine theoretical concepts and relational statements presented in the first edition to determine whether they have held over time and across various nursing settings and geographically diverse rural areas. This edition discusses changes in rural social structure and communication patterns with resulting implications for the provision of nursing care. This book will be very useful to educators and students in rural nursing programs and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in better understanding factors that influence nursing care in rural settings.
