An Introduction to the Ethos of Nursing Third Edition
In the changing and often ambiguous world of modern nursing, trainee nurses need a sound ethical foundation to guide them in their practice. This revised and updated edition of An Introduction to the Ethos of Nursing provides such a foundation. The authors give a clear explanation of the southern African nursing ethos, showing an appreciation of its complexity but never losing sight of the central tenet of nursing - that the nurse has a duty to care. The broad focus of the book is on the very nature of nursing, its meaning, the factors that brought nursing into being and the forces that shaped it. The book stimulates enquiry into professional values and related current issues.
