From Student to Nurse: A Longitudinal Study of Socialization (American Sociological Association Rose Monographs)

In this study of student nurses at Duke University, Professor Simpson challenges earlier research by demonstrating that a professional school does socialise its students. In addition, by constructing a model that brings together competing theories of socialisation, she finds that socialisation is not necessarily cumulative or unidirectional. Conceptualisations that focus on individual students, such as those emphasising role modelling, student values or peer relations, obscure the most significant conditions and processes. The program of a school is the fundamental structure of occupational socialisation and this structure, not its students, should be blamed for failures and praised for success.

Aequanimitas, with other addresses to medical students, nurses and practitioners of medicine ;

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

Sue Barton Student Nurse (Sue Barton, Volume 1)

New softcover edition: Introductory book to the Sue Barton series. This is the story of Sue Bartons first year of training as a probationer and then as a student nurse. Sue, with her red hair and eager spirit, is a very likable person - direct, outspoken, capable of mistakes, capable also of warm attachments and a courageous devotion to the service which she soon loves. With her pals, Kit and Connie, she submits to the discipline and rigorous training which are required of every good hospital nurse. Her love of humor gets her in and out of several scrapes: she tumbles into the laundry chute; she tries to defend her fellow student from the inevitable hazing; she gets into an amusing pickle with an Italian patient who speaks no English. Her warm heart and delightful spirit make friends for her among the patients and even win the occasional approbation of the stern staff. Her femininity has more than a casual effect on Dr. Barry, the ablest of the young interns. Sues student years are alive with color and incident: the tests which she must pass to win her cap; the mistakes, very human in themselves, which almost ruin her career; her struggle with a delirious patient, a struggle which tries her courage to the utmost; Christmas in the hospital, when the entire staff comes together for one spontaneous celebration. Whether or not a reader has the ambition to become a nurse, she will find in this story a true picture of the training school of a great hospital and a heart warming friendship with a fun, joyous young woman.

Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students: A Short Reference Manual

Delivering comprehensive and ethical patient-cenetered care is the goal of every nurse--and every nursing student. Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students is a concise and easy-to-use reference manual to assist nurses in achieving this practice goal. Although the manual addresses a broad spectrum of clinical situations, the challenge of patient communication underlies ever chapter. While evaluative strategies and therapeutic interventions frequently change, communication--with patients, their loved ones, and other members of the healthcare team--is a timeless and personal art. The concepts described in Practical Ethics for Nurses and Nursing Students are as important to patient care as any diagnostic or management technique. When a nurse or nursing student masters the art of communication with patients and has learned to identify and resolve ethical problems, she or he has acquired enduring, career-enhancing skills. Most importantly, she or he will provide better care to patients.
