Nursing Roles

Nursing Roles
Evolving or Recycled?

Edited by:

February 1997 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
As the definition of nursing and nursing activities becomes ever wider, Nursing Roles charts the evolution of nursing roles, examining both new directions and the reconfiguration of traditional roles. After a discussion of these new roles from ethical and conceptual viewpoints, the contributors: examine the parts nurses have begun to play as entrepreneurs, policy analysts and information specialists; consider how nurses should interact with untrained and unqualified assistants; discuss the implications for the nurse of long-term care and changing health care systems; and explore the emerging roles of practice nurses, clinical nurse specialists and acute care practitioners. Broad in its vision, Nursing Roles illuminates the future challenges and rewards of the nursing profession.
