Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Completely updated in a new sixth edition, this book provides knowledge of the historical, theoretical, ethical, and legal foundations of professional nursing. This resource explores the changing health care system especially related to health care economics, nursing in a culture of violence, and nursing in a culturally and spiritually diverse world. Also included is a chapter on returning to school after already practicing nursing in the field. The book serves as a refresher for topics and issues previously covered in nursing school, but also addresses issues that nurses will face in their new professional practice. This book is an excellent resource for professionals in the nursing field and is specifically designed the transition from RN-to-BSN. These are professionals that have their RN, but are returning for their BSN to further advance their careers.

After borrowing a copy from a friend who's a few semesters ahead of me, I decided to go ahead & get a copy for myself. Why? 1) I like to highlight most study materials, and, 2) I'll keep this as a reference as I go thru the rest of the RN to BSN program. I thought it was reasonably well-written and organized.

Ok book, but hard to read. Kind of boring. But I was very disappointed to find out that it didn't come with the mynursingkit access code that's supposed to be in used.

Received in good condition, used it with on line course that only provided the e-version, which is not acceptable to me as I mark important passages for future reference and quotes for papers I write.

This textbook gives a great, thorough, yet concise introduction to the art and science of nursing. I would recommend it to any nursing student. It also features critical thinking tools throught the readings to keep the student focussed on applying the information on a personal basis. I haven't finished it yet, but I like it so far. However, it's not the type of book that features many visuals such as pictures. It's words and paper pretty much, so if you're looking for an "eye-candy" textbook, you won't find it here.

Very informative for writing papers and resume's, other than that I found it boring. I will hold on to it for the writing factor.

It's easy to read and gives a good explanation for the new push for BSN nursing versus ADN. I was bitter that I had to make a change, but this book help me understand the bigger picture.
