"There are many policy books, but none are written by APRNs or focus just on APRN practice. This topic is critical in today's healthcare reform movement. APRNs are at the core, or can be, if they use their practice knowledge and education to shape policy...[The] editors eloquently make the case that policy formation is a critical nursing skill."--Doody's Medical Reviews ìGaining a better understanding of the political landscape and its impact on nursing and the APRN practice environment, by learning through textbooks such as this, and then through active involvement at any level in the political process itself, can only strengthen nursing and its influence on health policy .î -Loretta C.
