Key Concepts in Nursing

Edited by:


344 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Key Concepts in Nursing provides a much needed guide to the central topics and debates which shape nursing theory, policy and contemporary practice. From assessment to ethics, and leadership to risk management, the book offers a comprehensive yet concise guide to the professional field.

Each entry features:

" a snapshot definition of the concept

" a broader discussion addressing the main issues and links to practice

" key points relevant to the entry

" case studies to illustrate the application to practice

" examples of further reading.

Highly readable, with clear indexing and cross referencing, this is an ideal book for trainees to turn to for learning more about key issues in nursing practice and education. It meets the validation requirements of all training programmes and will also be invaluable for nurses continuing their professional education, those returning to practice and for mentoring.

I am very pleased to have this inspection copy of the book. It is very helpful in introducing nursing students to nursing concepts both for a foundations of nursing course and other courses. I found it very useful in my research project about nursing students professionalization. I am planning to use it for teaching professional writing course where I will use the content of the text for nursing students orientation to nursing key concepts and as examples for the application of writing skills.
The book is well organized, straight forward and simple to read and comprehend.
I hope to use it next semester with successful outcome. I hope the cost will be convenient for my students to buy this book in Jordan.
It is a valuable book to obtain
Thank you,
