Summary

The new edition of this respected resource is designed to raise nurses' awareness and understanding of health policy and political issues, enable them to analyze policy issues, enhance their political knowledge and skills, and prepare them for leadership roles in policy-making and public health. Over 100 well-known nurses explore policy and politics, strategies for policy development and political action, and the application of these strategies in the four spheres of workplace, government, organizations, and community.
