This was a required text book for my graduate school nursing class on current issues in nursing. I found this book to be very readable and full of pertinent information. The only potential downside is the fact that this book can easily become outdated due to changes in legislation. Policy and politics are an ever-changing front. I highly recommend this book. It helps the reader understand how we came to this point in healthcare and how we can be most effective in changing the legislative climate. This book was interesting, I found myself reading beyond the assignment.

Although I bought this as a required course textbook, I found it full of useful information for any professional nurse. I highly recommend it to all nurses to become more aware of how policy and politics affect our careers and practice.

Extreme amount of excellent information. Some of stories at the end of the chapters were a bit out of date but informative.

Nurses, you must read this! Shocking and interesting. Healthcare must be reformed, but how? You decide.

This is an excellent book for any nurse who wants to learn how health policy is written and what to do to make a difference in your practice. The authors are well educated and have incredible resources. Nurse polititians contribute a great deal to the book. For nurses who choose to get more politically involved than just in the workplace, this book gives the requirements for getting your feet wet in the political arena.

This book should definitely be required for any masters or doctorate nursing program.
