    This was a required text book for my graduate school nursing class on current issues in nursing. I found this book to be very readable and full of pertinent information. The only potential downside is the fact that this book can easily become outdated due to changes in legislation. Policy and politics are an everchanging front. I highly reccomend this book. It helps the reader understand how we came to this point in healthcare and how we can be most effective in changing the legislative climate. This book was interesting, I found myself reading beyond the assignment.

  5. Jane Reader says


    Although I bought this as a required course textbook, I found it full of useful information for any professional nurse. I highly recommend it to all nurses to become more aware of how policy and politics affect our careers and practice.

    Nurses, you must read this! Shocking and interesting. Healthcare must be reformed, but how? You decide.

  7. Rating

    This book is an excellent resource for nurses regarding healthcare policy and politics. It starts with very basic history and government reviews. It very much advocates for nurses to be active participants in healthcare policy making since we have much at stake with the outcomes.

  8. Michele Caldwell says


    This is an excellent book for any nurse who wants to learn how health policy is written and what to do to make a difference in your practice. The authors are well educated and have incredible resources. Nurse polititians contribute a great deal to the book. For nurses who choose to get more politically involved than just in the workplace, this book gives the requirements for getting your feet wet in the political arena.

    This book should definitely be required for any masters or doctorate nursing program.

    I like this book. It is very informative, comprehensive and well-researched. The manner of presentation is well-organized, the language is easy to understand. The information, relevant to the current issues of this decade and past history. This is a very good reference for those who are taking health care infrastructure, especially nurses; or for those who want to learn the history, evolution and course of health care in U.S.
