Decision Making in Nursing enables students to be reflective, critical, flexible, and comfortable with the many decisions they will make as a nurse on a daily basis. This text offers models that nurses may integrate into practice and explores how decisions are affected by health policy, politics, ethics, legal issues, religion, culture and other influences. Each chapter includes a case study using a nursing scenario to illustrate the use of a particular framework in an actual practice setting.
