Writing in Nursing: A Brief Guide is the ideal, pocket-sized manual for undergraduate nursing students who want to improve their writing.Writing is often a part of many nursing courses, including introductions to health systems, public and community health, leadership, nursing fundamentals, and ethics, and clinical specializations in long-term chronic nursing care, acute medical-surgical care, psychiatric nursing, and child andmaternal health. In addition to research papers, nursing students may write reflective essays, article critiques, case reports or case studies, care critiques, poster presentations, oral presentations with PowerPoint or Prezi slides, practice-change recommendations, and discharge summaries or careplans. The aim of Writing in Nursing: A Brief Guide is to provide nursing students with a practical guide to writing, with clear instructions and concrete examples from students and professionals. In lieu of a conventional rhetorical structure, this book will use the nursing process as the framework forits writing strategies: assessment, diagnosis, outcomes/planning, implementation, and evaluation. It will emphasize that writing like a professional nurse requires thinking like one.
