Summary

To meet the demands of a dramatically changing health care system, nurses must change and grow. Now, more than ever, they are challenged to be effective members of collaborative health care teams; to creatively implement strategies with clients of diverse cultural backgrounds; to manage personnel and budgets; and to understand holistic healing modalities and complementary therapies. Professional Nursing Practice: Concepts and Perspectives, Third Edition, has been thoroughly revised to address topics such as managed care, critical thinking, and the nature of professional nursing practice today. This text is intended for RNs who are in transition or in bridge programs to pursue BSNs.

  • NEW! Thirteen chapters reflect important topics in today's changing health care environment. Topics include: collaboration in health care, critical thinking and decision making, promoting health for individuals and families, and providing care in the home and community.
  • NEW! Two-color design highlights important information and makes the text easier to use.
  • NEW! Practicing Nurse Profiles in Chapters 17 and 23 provide useful 'first person' perspectives as to why practitioners chose their specific practice areas, what their jobs entail, and what qualities would be necessary in these settings.
  • NEW! 'Consider' sections in each chapter present relevant questions or ideas for thought or group discussion.
  • NEW! Of special interest to the returning RN student is a new Chapter 23 on 'Advanced Professional Education.'
  • Readings for Enrichment boxes provide annotated readings to supplement the learner's knowledge.
  • A clear, professional writing style effectively engages students and clearly explains concepts.
  • Complete and current, this text presents core concepts in professional nursing roles, process, and practice.
  • Hallmark chapters have been completely updated including: Nursing Theories and Conceptual Frameworks (2); Health and Wellness (3); Values, Ethics and Advocacy (5); Legal Rights and Responsibilities (6); Socialization to Professional Nursing Roles (7); Learner and Teacher (9); Change Process Nursing Process (13); Group Process (15); Supporting Cultural Needs (18).
  • Historical perspectives of nursing care now included in Chapter 1, 'Perspectives of Professional Practice.'
