Nursing faculty are already raving about our recently published Advanced Practice Nursing: Contexts of Care by Lynette Hamlin. According to one nursing instructor, "it's refreshing to see a text that is written from the perspective of a nurse practitioner for nurse practitioners." Another nursing faculty member praises its, "details, objectives, true-to-life scenarios, and motivational messages [that] get readers involved in deductive solutions to the problems."
Featuring a collection of case studies for the advanced practice nurse, the text examines both the regulatory and legal environment surrounding nursing practice and its influence on health care. Used throughout are actual case studies that illustrate and analyze practice context, including organizational structure, managed care, inter- and intra-professional issues, politics, power, finance, planning, regulation, ethics, law, quality, and patient safety.
What else makes this text special?
- Cases integrate the history and development of trends and issues into contemporary practice
- Analyzes the influences of the working and regulatory contracts upon nursing practice
- Provides a differential diagnosis among political, policy, regulatory, legal, and professional causes of contextual problems
