The Essence Of Nursing Practice
Philosophy And Perspective
Sobre o livro
This one-of-a-kind book provides an in-depth analysis of nursing practice as a concept and area of study, rather than an aggregation of specific techniques and skills. The text addresses the essential features of nursing practice using a five-level nursing framework developed by the author. This framework promotes a deep understanding of how nursing should be holistically practiced rather than focusing on particular nursing competencies. The book stresses the importance of developing a multi-faceted, adaptable approach to nursing that integrates all of its complexities including philosophy, knowledge and knowing, and situational contingencies. Also addressed are the integral components of nursing practice, including essential tools, collaboration, knowledge application, competence, expertise, and quality of practice.
