With the contributions from expert clinicians, administrators and educators in their respective fields, this book covers everything that is needed for the successful transition from student to registered nurse. This book also encourages exploration of the larger social context that forms, molds, and impacts nursing practice. Innovative, current chapters include Health Disparities, Insurance, and Health Policy, as well as vital information on taking the NCLEX Exam, workplace safety and much more."--Publisher’s description.
