The principles and practice of nursing and health care addresses the essential educational needs of nursing students and health care professionals within the context of the most recent guidelines set by the South African Nursing Council. It integrates a wide range of perspectives, giving students a sense of their multiple responsibilities within the nursing and health care environment, while at the same time demonstrating and reinforcing the values and ethics that must form the foundation of all their activities. Interactive learning is an essential aid for students, most especially in a book such as this, which provides a comprehensive survey of a very broad range of topics. An abundance of activities, case studies, and questions is therefore provided. The book is further enriched by an accompanying CD containing additional reading material and activities. This textbook is divided into the following five sections: Section 1: Ethos of nursing and professional practice; Section 2: Health care unit management; Section 3: Staff development; Section 4: Overview of the research process; Section 5: Health dynamics The principles and practice of nursing and health care has been carefully designed to meet the academic needs of nursing students and health care professionals. In addition, it will serve as a practical reference and guide in understanding and managing the many issues readers will confront every day while delivering quality care to clients and communities.
