Based on candid interviews with 35 nurses who were deployed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this is the first book to reveal the stresses and moral dilemmas they experienced as they transitioned back into everyday life. The nurses share their difficulties with family separation, clinical reassignments, post-traumatic stress disorder, the perceived stigma of seeking mental health counseling, and compassion fatigue. They describe how "doing nursing" in a war zone changed them personally and expanded their nursing skills, and how reintegration was more difficult than they had anticipated. In addition to serving as a personal account of the experiences,both individual and collective,of these military nurses, the book will serve researchers as a compelling example of qualitative, phenomenological, and descriptive research. Interviewees describe in vivid detail their homecoming, family adjustments, renegotiation of spousal and parenting roles, domestic and workplace challenges, and many other dilemmas posed by the reintegration process. They provide insights and thoughtful recommendations for changes to current military debriefing to improve the experiences of future wartime nurses. Encompassing all three branches of the military, the book also examines the differences between active duty services and reserve unit services, issues of substance abuse, the Veterans Administration, the burden of multiple deployments, and other common threads among nurses who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. KEY FEATURES: Provides vivid narrative accounts of nurses' reintegration experiences Delivers the first research study of nursing reintegration, which includes Army, Navy, and Air Force Nurse Corps officers following deployment in the Iraqi and Afghani Conflicts Demonstrates how a comprehensive qualitative nursing research study can be crafted into a highly accessible, compelling account Explores the personal and professional paths of 35 nurses returning from war Addresses the reintegration differences between active duty versus reserve status

This unique volume presents the experience of 37 U.S. military nurses sent to the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war to care for the injured and dying. The personal and professional challenges they faced, the difficulties they endured, the dangers they overcame, and the consequences they grappled with are vividly described from deployment to discharge. In mobile surgical field hospitals and fast-forward teams, detainee care centers, base and city hospitals, medevac aircraft, and aeromedical staging units, these nurses cared for their patients with compassion, acumen, and inventiveness. And when they returned home, they dealt with their experience as they could. The text is divided into thematic chapters on essential issues: how the nurses separated from their families and the uncertainties they faced in doing so; their response to horrific injuries that combatants, civilians and children suffered; working and living in Iraq and Afghanistan for extended periods; personal health issues; and what it meant to care for enemy insurgents and detainees. Also discussed is how the experience enhanced their clinical skills, why their adjustment to civilian life was so difficult, and how the war changed them as nurses, citizens, and people. Key Features: Describes verbatim the experiences of 37 nurses in two brutal, chaotic theaters of war Offers poignant encounters with patients Includes advice, clarity, and lessons learned about nursing in war Offers a women's health perspective on working and living in a war zone Demonstrates the dedication, expertise, and spirit of military nurses

In den letzten Jahren sind tiefgreifende Veränderungen der institutionellen Regelungsstrukturen der europäischen Bildungssysteme zu beobachten. Inzwischen hat sich mit der Educational Governance ein eigenständiger Forschungsbereich etabliert, der sich der Transformation von Steuerungsformen im Bildungsbereich zuwendet. Ziel des vorliegenden Bandes ist die Analyse der veränderten Governance-Praxen. Die Aufmerksamkeit der empirischen Beiträge ist dabei vor allem auf national und sektoral unterschiedliche Prozesse und Wirkungen von Governance-Modi gerichtet. Darüber hinaus werden theoretische und methodische Weiterentwicklungen der interdisziplinär verstandenen Educational-Governance-Forschung zur Diskussion gestellt.

Die verlorenen B cher der Odyssee

Es könnte auch alles ganz anders gewesen sein: Odysseus entscheidet sich gegen den Bau des Trojanischen Pferdes; Polyphem, der bösartige Zyklop, ist ein sanftmütiger Riese; Penelope, des Wartens müde, hat längst einen anderen geheiratet oder aber: Als der Held endlich im heimatlichen Ithaka angekommen ist, langweilt er sich bald so sehr, daß er erneut die Segel hißt ... In seinem hochgelobten Debütroman erfindet Zachary Mason Homers Epos vom listenreichen Odysseus und seinen Irrfahrten ganz neu. Spielerisch packt Mason den Klassiker, stellt ihn auf den Kopf und präsentiert einen frischen, zeitgenössischen Roman über die Reise eines Mannes zu sich selbst. Und schafft dabei mit leichter Hand die Illusion, daß dieses Buch der verlorengegangene Urtext von Homers Meisterwerk sein könnte. Mason ist ein wunderbar amüsantes, kluges und wagemutiges Buch gelungen, das den postmodernen Erzählungen von Jorge Luis Borges und Italo Calvino in nichts nachsteht.
