    Caring for the Vulnerable: Perspectives in Nursing Theory, Practice, and Research, Fifth Edition is a “landmark book that should be read around the world” (Taken from the preface of the Fifth Edition)

    The new edition focuses on vulnerable populations and how nurses can care for, develop programs, conduct research, and influence health policy. This is a unique text that caters to all levels of nursing students as well as professionals.
