L. Yeung, MSN, RN Lecturer and Clinical Faculty California State University, School of Nursing Los Angeles, California Preface A dynamic healthcare environment requires growth and change in the nursing profession. Skills in communication and interpersonal relations are needed for nurses to be effective members of collaborative interdisciplinary healthcare teams. Critical thinking and creativity are necessary as nurses implement care with clients of diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds in a variety of settings. Nurses must be prepared to provide care not only in hospital settings but also in community and residential settings, such as work sites, schools, faith-based communities, homeless shelters, and prisons. The nurse’s unique role demands a blend of nurturance, compassion, sensitivity, caring, empathy, commitment, courage, competence, and skill that comes from a broad knowledge base of the arts, humanities, biological and social sciences, and the discipline of nursing. Nurses need skills in teaching, collaborating, leading, managing, advocacy, political involvement, and applying theory, research, and evidence to practice. An understanding of holistic healing modalities and complementary therapies used in the care of patients and clients is becoming more essential. Professional Nurse Interview Questions NUR 3805

Knowledge of global health includes the nurse’s understanding of nursing and health care as practiced around the world and how health/disease conditions in other countries can affect the health status of citizens and residents of our own country. Quality and safety in health care are of primary concern to the profession. This book addresses content by which nurses build their repertoire of nursing knowledge. This content includes, but is not limited to, wellness, health promotion, and disease/injury prevention; holistic care; multiculturalism, global health; nursing history; technology and informatics; nursing theories and conceptual frameworks; nursing research; quality and safety; and professional empowerment and politics. Professional Nursing Practice: Concepts and Perspectives, 7th Edition, is intended as a text for registered nurses who are in transition or bridge programs to achieve a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing. It may also be used in generic nursing programs or in transition or bridge programs for vocational nurses (LPNs or LVNs) to complete the professional nursing baccalaureate degree. This text addresses the areas of knowledge that professional nurses require to be effective in the changing healthcare environment. The organization of this text emphasizes the foundational knowledge related to professional nursing, including nursing history, nursing knowledge development, ethics, and legal aspects; the roles of professional nurses, including health promoter and care provider, learner and teacher, leader and manager, research consumer, advocate, and colleague and collaborator; the processes guiding nursing, including communication, change, and technology and informatics; nursing in a changing healthcare delivery system, including healthcare economics, holistic health care, global health, cultural and spiritual dimensions of client care, and nursing in a culture of violence; graduate education and advanced nursing practice; and nursing in the future. NEW TO THIS EDITION All chapters have been revised to reflect current professional nursing knowledge based on foundational knowledge: • A new chapter, Chapter 11, “The Nurse’s Role in Quality and Safety,” addresses quality and safety education for nurses (QSEN). Regulations, quality indicators, and benchmarking are discussed as they apply to professional nursing. • A new chapter, Chapter 19, “Global Health,” describes the goals of global health, demographic and epidemic shifts, communicable and noncommunicable diseases around the world, health systems models in the global environment, and nursing roles, responsibilities, and opportunities in global health. • New content on healthcare reform and implementation of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 as it has implications for nursing has been added to this edition. •Professional Nurse Interview Questions NUR 3805

New content on nursing knowledge development and evidence-based practice has been added. • Chapter summaries are now presented as a bulleted list of chapter highlights to facilitate student preparation for exams. Hallmark Features The seventh edition of Professional Nursing Practice: Concepts and Perspectives retains several of the features that have been well received by faculty and students who have used previous editions: • All new to this edition, Research Currents (formerly called Evidence for Practice) boxes that describe quantitative and qualitative research studies relevant to chapter content and relate them to clinical or professional practice. xiii xiv    PREFACE • Critical Thinking Exercises that require readers to apply concepts from chapters to exemplar situations. • Reflect On . . . sections that ask the reader to contemplate her or his own practice and beliefs about professional nursing in relation to the chapter content. • Interviews of practicing nurses, which can be found in two chapters: Chapter 19, “Providing Care in the Home and Community,” and Chapter 24, “Advanced Nursing Education and Practice.” The profiles include information about why these practitioners chose their specific practice areas, what qualities they think are necessary to be a nurse in that area, what their practice entails, and what encouragement they would offer a nurse considering practice in this area. The profiles provide useful first-person perspectives for readers. • InfoQuest, which directs students to Internet-based information resources related to chapter content. Organization This edition is organized into five units, with an introductory chapter preceding the first unit. Units and chapters can be used independently or in any sequence. Some nursing programs use this text for first-semester nursing students in a professional socialization course. Other nursing programs use the text at the end of their nursing program in a professional transition course. Professional Nurse Interview Questions NUR 3805
