To meet the demands of a dramatically changing health care system, nurses must change and grow. Skills in communication and interpersonal relations are needed for nurses to become effective members of a collaborative health care team. Nurses need to think critically and be creative in implementing nursing strategies with clients of diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds in increasingly diverse settings. They need skills in teaching, collaborating, leading, managing, advocacy, political involvement, and analyzing and applying theory and research findings to practice. Nurses must be prepared to provide care not only in hospitals, but also in client homes and other community-based settings, including clinics, schools, occupational sites, faith-based communities, homeless shelters, and prisons. Their unique role demands a blend of nurturance, compassion, sensitivity, caring, empathy, commitment, courage, competence, and skill based on broad knowledge of the arts, humanities, biological and social sciences, and nursing science. In addition, an understanding of holistic healing modalities and complementary therapies is becoming more essential. In this book we address concepts on which nurses can build their repertoire of professional nursing, knowledge. These concepts include, but are not limited to, wellness, health promotion, and disease prevention; holistic care; multiculturalism; nursing history; technology and informatics; nursing theories and conceptual frameworks; nursing research; and professional empowerment and politics.
Professional Nursing Practice: Concepts and Perspectives, 4th edition, is intended as a text for registered nurses who are in transition or bridge programs to pursue a baccalaureate degree in nursing. It may also be used in generic nursing programs or in transition or bridge programs for vocational nurses (LPNs or LVNs) to complete the professional nursing baccalaureate degree. This text has been revised extensively to reflect the additional areas of knowledge that practicing nurses require to be effective in the changing health care system. A new organization in the text emphasizes the foundational knowledge related to professional nursing, including nursing history, nursing theory, ethics, and legal aspects; the processes guiding nursing, including communication, group, change, and technology and informatics; nursing in a changing health care-delivery system, including health care economics, cultural and spiritual dimensions of nursing care, nursing in a culture of violence; and nursing in the new millennium, which discusses advanced nursing education and practice and visions for the future of nursing.
