I can't can't believe I have to read this garbage to earn my MSN.

It's been required reading for me and I have learned so much about how nurses can influence health care through policy and political action.

Format: Paperback
A must have book for every nurse's library! Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care is the most comprehensive book of its kind. From nursing students to doctorally prepared nurses in clinical practice, education, research or administration, this book provides a wealth of information for all nurses. The U.S. health care system is changing at an unprecedented rate. It is important for nurses to be actively engaged in the political process which will determine health care delivery of the future. Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care will help nurses to learn about this process as well as how they can have a voice in shaping our health care system in order to provide quality, affordable and accessible health care for those in need.

This has been the best book for nurses on health policy since the first edition was published. It's been required reading for me and I have learned so much about how nurses can influence health care through policy and political action. The reviews that say this book is biased are so wrong - those readers must have missed the chapters about conservative nurses and what they've accomplished, the chapter that explains political philosophy, the chapter by Republican legislator Mary Behrens, and the chapter by Republican activist Elene Lopez Bowlan. This book presents many sides of important issues and is extremely balanced. It gets great feedback from students and nurses in practice that I talk to. No other health policy book that is for sale now comes close to offering what this book does. It is the best!

Great information and really gets the reader thinking of the possibilities of getting involved. I needed it for school, but plan on keeping it for future reference.

This book was required for a Master's level class in Nursing Policy. It is a great book, easy to read and understand, with very short chapters. There is a lot of repetition among the chapters which helps to reinforce learning. The topics covered in the book are current and relevant to health care and nursing. Overall an interesting, educational, and even enjoyable book (as enjoyable as a text book can be).

Great book. Hard for me to personally mix politics with my nursing practice, but after reading this book, I get the importance.

Soon my review will be outdated, but this book was current and I found it helpful for illuminating facts about the ACA and how it affects my practice. Helped put it into words and terms I could understand. I like how it clearly has a nursing focus.

For a textbook, this has an obvious bias toward feminism that impacts the trustworthiness of the information in several chapters. Not impressed.

This book jumps right on board acting as a cheerleader for Obamacare along side the biased media. The book does not provide information for the intent of educating the student/consumer, but only adds to the intent to brainwash naive students and generate a mass of uneducated youth. I'm completed disgusted. I can't can't believe I have to read this garbage to earn my MSN.
