Summary

To meet the demands of a dramatically changing health care system, nurses must change and grow. Now, more than ever, they are challenged to be effective members of collaborative health care teams; to creatively implement strategies with clients of diverse cultural backgrounds; to manage personnel and budgets; and to understand holistic healing modalities and complementary therapies. Professional Nursing Practice: Concepts and Perspectives, Third Edition, has been thoroughly revised to address topics such as managed care, critical thinking, and the nature of professional nursing practice today. This text is intended for RNs who are in transition or in bridge programs to pursue BSNs.
