An ideal choice for anyone who wants to gain a professional edge in the world of nursing today, the latest edition of this popular book introduces you to the issues and trends you're likely to encounter in any practice setting. Each stand-alone chapter introduces and explores a specific topic, enabling them to be read in any order. You'll find insightful discussions of professionalization in nursing, standards and scope of practice, socialization and nursing theories surrounding the profession, critical thinking, research and evidence-based practice, the health care delivery system, and professional associations and political action facing nurses. Additionally, thought provoking questions, practical strategies, real-life scenarios, self-assessments, and personal viewpoints and interviews help you extend and apply the ideas presented.
