Summary

CONTEMPORARY NURSING examines the current and historical factors shaping the nursing profession. Each chapter begins with "real-life" vignettes and focuses on key issues such as trends in nursing education, the health care delivery system, and nursing practices; nursing research; cultural competence; and clinical information systems. Units on Professional Survival Strategies and Career Management are an excellent resource for new nurses. For those further along the career path, an expansive leadership and management section lays out the essential skills required of a nursing leader or manager. You'll even find lists of professional nursing organizations and state boards in the appendix.
