A complete compendium of the non-clinical aspects of nursing -- from history to career management

"This is a very complete account of nonclinical nursing issues from ethics to nursing education to career building and transitions. It has been updated to be relevant for today's changing healthcare system and is a must have for all nursing students and newly graduated nurses."--Doody's Review Service

Kelly's Dimensions of Professional Nursing delivers an unmatched view of the ever-changing field of nursing: how it has developed, what it has become, where it is going, and your role in it. You will find clear insight into all the important healthcare issues of today and a state-of-the-art review of government and political action, legal aspects, education for practice, workplace environments, ethics and patient rights, career opportunities, research, leadership and change, and much more.

You will also learn about the rights and responsibilities that come with transition to the role of graduate, and then to RN: workplace hazards, legal rights of employees, workplace representation, collective bargaining, maintaining competency, and career mapping. An entire section on Transition Into Practice covers job selection and career management. Websites of particular value are listed at the end of each section, and chapters are cross-referenced to provide a more complete view of a topic and to help you see interrelationship of subject matter.

You will find coverage of key topics such as:

  • Nursing as a Profession
  • Professional Ethics and the Nurse
  • Major Issues and Trends in Nursing Education
  • Programs in Nursing Education
  • Nursing Research: Status, Problems, and Issues
  • Opportunities in Modern Nursing
  • An Introduction to the Law
  • Major Legislation Affecting Nursing
  • Licensure and Health Personnel Credentialing
  • Health Care and the Rights of People
  • Important Nursing Organizations

Updated to reflect the new realities of today's healthcare, Kelly's Dimensions of Professional Nursing, 10e is a must-read for anyone who wants to succeed in the nursing profession.
