Praise for Educating Nurses "This book represents a call to arms, a call for nursing educators and programs to step up in our preparation of nurses. This book will incite controversy, wonderful debate, and dialogue among nurses and others. It is a must-read for every nurse educator and for every nurse that yearns for nursing to acknowledge and reach for the real difference that nursing can make in safety and quality in health care." —Beverly Malone, chief executive officer, National League for Nursing "This book describes specific steps that will enable a new system to improve both nursing formation and patient care. It provides a timely and essential element to health care reform." —David C. Leach, former executive director, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education "The ideas about caregiving developed here make a profoundly philosophical and intellectually innovative contribution to medicine as well as all healing professions, and to anyone concerned with ethics. This groundbreaking work is both paradigm-shifting and delightful to read." —Jodi Halpern, author, From Detached Concern to Empathy: Humanizing Medical Practice "This book is a landmark work in professional education! It is a must-read for all practicing and aspiring nurse educators, administrators, policy makers, and, yes, nursing students." —Christine A.

When Dr. Simmons began the research that inspired this book, she simply wanted to help the nurses at her hospital improve their understanding of when to call a chaplain for an oncology patient. The research led her on a journey that not only taught her how to see the bigger picture behind the ordeal a patient and family must face but allowed her to benefit the entire care team in the process. As the author educates readers on the increased need to recognize when patients will benefit from a chaplaincy referral, they will gain a deeper understanding of Biblical perspectives on sickness and suffering. Anyone who has ever battled serious illness, worked in a medical setting, or had family or friends who were ill, will appreciate this in-depth study. The dedication that inspired Dr. Simmons to recognize chaplaincy as a vital part of the care team is both hopeful and inspiring. It is a reminder that in the journey of suffering, no one has to go it alone. The journey is about teamwork.

Increasingly, genomic-based approaches and resources are redefining our categorization of disease, leading to new approaches to prevention and therapy. As nurses traditionally practice patient-oriented care, they will undoubtedly play a key role in both developing and applying the aspects of genomic health care. Nursing Care in the Genomic Era: A Case Based Approach is designed to provide nurses with up-to-date and accessible information on this powerful new approach to understanding, preventing, and treating disease.The framework for each chapter consists of core competencies in genetics, interwoven with stories that highlight a particular condition and the related biological, personal, and psychosocial issues. The chapters then go on to address the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for nurses and health professionals as recommended by the National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics (NCHPEG). The text presents the genetic components of common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer's, and the innovative technologies used to detect them.Understanding genomic issues and how they affect individuals and families is the first step for nurses hoping to make a difference when providing nursing care in the genomic era.

PRAISE FOR EDUCATING PHYSICIANS "Educating Physicians provides a masterful analysis of undergraduate and graduate medical education in the United States today. It represents a major educational document, based firmly on educational psychology, learning theory, empirical studies, and careful personal observations of many individual programs. It also recognizes the importance of financing, regulation, and institutional culture on the learning environment, which suffuses its recommendations for reform with cogency and power. Most important, like Abraham Flexner's classic study a century ago, the report recognizes that medical education and practice, at their core, are profoundly moral enterprises. This is a landmark volume that merits attention from anyone even peripherally involved with medical education." —Kenneth M. Ludmerer, author, Time to Heal: American Medical Education from the Turn of the Century to the Era of Managed Care "This is a very important book that comes at a critical time in our nation's history. We will not have enduring health care reform in this country unless we rethink our medical education paradigms. This book is a call to arms for doing just that." —George E. Thibault, president, Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation "The authors provide us with the evidence-based model for physician education with associated changes in infrastructure, policy, and our roles as educators. Whether you agree or not with their conclusions, if you are a teacher this book is a must-read as it will frame both what and how we discuss medical education throughout the current century." —Deborah Simpson, associate dean for educational support and evaluation, Medical College of Wisconsin "A provocative book that provides us with a creative vision for medical education. Using in-depth case studies of innovative educational practices illustrating what is actually possible, the authors provide sage advice for transforming medical education on the basis of learning theories and educational research." —Judith L. Bowen, professor of medicine, Oregon Health & Science University

"Transitioning to rural practice can be daunting for both experienced nurses and new graduates who have an urban orientation and are accustomed to specialized practice with abundant health care resources. Since most nursing education programs and practicing nurses are located in urban settings, programs are needed to prepare nurses who choose rural practice. In their book, Dr. Molinari and Dr. Bushy provide excellent examples of practice models from North America, New Zealand, and Australia with curricula that address transition issues. The text makes a significant contribution to the discussion about how to best prepare nurses for rural practice and will be of interest to administrators, educators, and clinicians. From the Foreward by Charlene A. Winters, PhD, APRN, ACNS-BC Associate Professor Montana State University College of Nursing This is the only volume to address the pressing need for practical information about transitioning from an urban-based nursing education or practice to a rural health care environment. It provides successful strategies that nurses in rural settings can use to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative programs that will meet the needs of individual rural communities. The book details current rural nursing transition-to-practice trends and issues, national standards, and evidence-based model programs worldwide. Rural practice culture is described along with professional education issues, competency, patient care, and safety. Chapters are presented in easy-to-access formats that offer ready solutions for problems commonly encountered in rural practice such as nurse recruitment and retention. In addition to health care delivery issues for specific rural populations, the book presents program descriptions from local to state levels, including locally developed education programs, urban hospital systems outreach to rural facilities, universities collaborating with rural businesses, city-based workshops, statewide competencies tracked by employers, and a distance education program customized by rural agencies. Case studies demonstrate how rural facilities-even the smallest and most isolated-are advancing health care through nurse support. The text will be of value to rural nursing staff developers, critical access hospitals and community clinic administrators, rural professional organizations, small urban health facilities, continuing education providers, nursing workforce centers, and graduate programs. Key Features: The first transition from academia-to-practice guide for rural nursing Charts evidence-based successes and offers model programs in different rural settings Provides rural-specific information to facilitate statewide health mandates Features residency program development processes, with tips and tools that work

Designated a Doody's Core Title! The Preeminent Nursing Terminology Classification System "The Clinical Care Classification (CCC) System described in this manual is the only standard coded nursing terminology that is based on sound research using the nursing process model framework and that meets the Patient Medical Record Information (PMRI) comparability requirement. The CCC System allows patient care data generated by nurses to be incorporated into the PMRI database, and enables nurses' contributions to patient outcomes to be studied and acknowledged." -- From the Foreword by Sheryl L. Taylor, BSN, RN, Senior Consultant, Farrell Associates TESTIMONIES: "ABC Coding Solutions-Alternative Link developed ABC codes for nursing in collaboration with Dr. Virginia Saba, developer of the CCC system. Approximately two hundred ABC codes were developed from the CCC System of Nursing Interventions to accurately document nursing and integrative health care processes, classify and track clinical care, and develop evidence-based practice models, thus filling significant gaps in older medical code sets." --Connie Koshewa, Practitioner Relations Director, ABC Coding Solutions-Alternative Link "The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNPÆ) is a program of the International Council of Nurses (ICN). One of the first steps in the development of the ICNPÆ was to collect and compare all the nursing concepts in existing nursing terminologies, including the CCC. To facilitate the goal of ICNPÆ as a unified nursing language system, a project is under way to map the CCC to the ICNPÆ Version 1.0. This work will facilitate evaluation and ongoing development of both terminologies and allow ICN to compare data using CCC codes with data from other standard nursing terminologies." --Amy Coenen, PhD, RN, FAAN, Director, ICNPÆ Program, International Council of Nurses
