Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aileen Kishi, PhD, RN (University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing)
Description: This book highlights the 1994 proceedings of the National League for Nursing's Council of Associate Degree Programs. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 focuses on the history of Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) education, the changes occurring in healthcare reform, and the future challenges facing educators. Part 2 focuses on new ways for faculty to collaborate and share expertise. Part 3 focuses on faculty change, methods to enhance learning opportunities and unique ways to empower students and faculty. Part 4 explores new settings to teach.
Purpose: The purposes are to clarify the direction and visions of ADN education in a time of change, ambiguity, and decreased resources in healthcare and nursing education and to highlight national and local strategies that reflect creativity, innovation, and excellence in ADN education.
Audience: Although this book targets ADN directors and educators, it is also beneficial for graduate students, deans, and faculty in baccalaureate and higher nursing education who are interested in facilitating educational preparation for now emerging and future nursing practice roles.
Features: The format of the book, including a variety of pertinent and current references and a well-organized table of contents, makes it easy to read cover to cover or to pick and choose chapters of interest. The holistic concept of the "Web of Inclusion" is reflected in the illustration on the book's cover and in the theme of this book. Use of tables and figures to illustrate the theme of the chapters helps to present pertinent information in a concise and readable format.
Assessment: The visions for nursing education reform, ways in which faculty can collaborate and share expertise, opportunities for faculty to change and embrace ambiguity, and a curriculum model to support differentiated practice roles in the community are pertinent for educators and administrators in all nursing programs to consider. This book is a valuable resource for nurse educators and administrators who are striving to prepare graduates to meet a variety of healthcare needs in a wide variety of settings. It provides some provocative food for thought and discussion on how nurse educators can "rethink, retool, and leave behind what will not work in the future." This book is a valuable resource for graduate students to review and discuss in their nursing education courses. The contributors from the Council of Associate Degree Programs look at a variety of issues, trends, and solutions to capture their collective vision for nursing's future. This book is appropriate for individual or nursing education library purchase.
