Holistic Nursing Practice is a peer-reviewed journal that provides nurses and educators with information on holistic approaches to nursing practice in clinical settings.
HNP takes a complete mind and body approach to nursing, addressing both clinical and psychosocial concerns. Each issue provides in-depth focus on timely topics applicable to daily clinical practice. Emphasis is on health-oriented, biobehavioral research of importance to nurses at every level, in every setting. Provocative, innovative analyses of controversies inherent to holistic nursing practice are included. Innovative and stimulating, this bimonthly is an essential resource for integrating holistic care in multidisciplinary clinical practice.
Achieving Excellence in Nursing Education is based on the National League of Nursing’s Excellence in Nursing Education Model that describes the eight core elements required to achieve and sustain excellence in educational programs: clear program standards, well-prepared faculty, qualified students, well-prepared administrators, evidence-based programs and teaching/evaluation methods, quality and adequate resources, recognition of expertise, and student-centered, interactive and innovative programs and curricula.
Each chapter of the book addresses one of the core elements, with the visual depiction of that component of the model noted. Within each chapter, the core element is explored and justification to support its importance in achieving excellence is provided. The text acts as a springboard for nurse educators’ pursuit of excellence in nursing education.
Global Service-Learning in Nursing is a single source of information for nurse educators seeking to develop programs to teach best practices of care-giving across cultural and geographic boundaries. Nurse educators from a wide range of institutions share their insights about the successes and challenges of program development, implementation, and evaluation.
The global service-learning (GSL) model offers an excellent structure to enhance nurses’ participation in the global health care community. This book charts the course of accomplishments thus far, and challenges nurses to stretch even more.
