Editorial Reviews

“I think that this book has improved with each edition. I particularly liked the chapter on Cultural Diversity, as it reflects the way that we teach this concept. This chapter clearly reinforces the notion that culture cannot be defined through knowledge of different groups. I also very much appreciate the chapter on Advocacy, ethical and legal considerations as it frames these concepts through the notion of social justice, which underlies our course. I think that these chapter in particular really highlight the implicit ‘Canadian-ness’ of the book; having recently reviewed several US books, I am convinced that you cannot turn an American book into a Canadian one — the underlying philosophies are toooooo different!” -- Assistant Professor, Ryerson University   “This is the ONLY text that I have reviewed (and I have reviewed nearly all the current community nursing books at one time or another) that provides the right mix of introduction to concepts and critical analysis of these concepts.” -- Assistant Professor, Ryerson University   “Overall I think the material is excellent and very relevant. I am VERY happy with the new material and newly re-written chapters.” -- Professor, Douglas College   “I thought the addition of the CRNE questions was an excellent idea. Sometimes students have difficulty understanding how what they are learning will translate into their practice so exam questions also support the notion that what they are learning is necessary” -- Professor, Douglas College
