This book emerges from a study of nursing education by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, as part of its Preparation for the Professions series. It is written for administrators and faculty in nursing schools and programs.The profession of nursing in the United States is at a significant moment. Profound changes in science, technology, patient activism, the market-driven health care environment, the nature and settings of nursing practice have all radically transformed nursing practice since the last national nursing education study, forty years ago. The changes in nursing practice, in turn, have enormous implications for nursing education, which this book explores.
