    Role Development in Professional Nursing Practice, Fourth EditionRole development is such an important component to a successful nursing career, one that includes a strong foundation in teamwork and collaboration, communication, leadership, quality improvement, and safety. In a recent 4-star review of Role Development in Professional Nursing Practice, Fourth Edition by Kathleen Masters, Beth A. Ammerman, MSN, BSN, from Linden Family Medicine, writing for Doody's Review Service, deems it,

    "…a well-rounded view of the subject. This is a solid tool for beginning students in nursing. This update, which incorporates nursing core competencies, critical thinking, and case studies, is justified."

    Role Development in Professional Nursing Practice, Fourth Edition maintains a focus on professional role socialization and integrates the Nurse of the Future (NOF): Nurse Core Competency model throughout. Also examined are issues within the context of the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies.

    What else makes the Fourth Edition special?

    • Key Competency boxes showcase the NOF Nursing Competencies that highlight the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSA) required of the professional nurse
    • One chapter for each QSEN competency, including a new chapter on teamwork and collaboration
    • Incorporates the updated Scope and Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics from the American Nurses Association (ANA)
    • Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools
