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

I had to purchase this book for my MSN health policy class. I can tell from the first several pages-- and scanning through other chapeters-- this book is written from a liberal perspective. What happened to being open minded to other points of view?? Oh, I know, that only pertains to conservatives.

Never read it.
Couldn't say whether it's good or not...

Simple and to the point. Easy to read. No unnecessary information. I use it for my online degree and I can really appreciate concise chapters with main points still discussed.
