Contemporary Nursing: Issues, Trends and Management examines the current and historical factors which shape the nursing profession. This exciting new text provides a comprehensive overview of significant trends and issues in nursing education, the health care delivery system and nursing practice that affect current and future professional roles and responsibilities. In addition to chapters traditionally found in issues and trend books, Contemporary Nursing includes an expanded leadership and management section that focuses on the essential skills required for successful practice as a nursing leader and manager. This new text includes chapters on nursing research, cultural competence and clinical information systems to address important topics related to practice. The last two units, Professional Survival Strategies and Career Management, are an excellent resource for the new nurse to help learn self-improvement skills as well as skills to manage a successful career as a professional nurse.
