From novice to expert : excellence and power in clinical nursing practice by Patricia E Benner( Book )

42 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This coherent presentation of clinical judgement, caring practices and collaborative practice provides ideas and images that readers can draw upon in their interactions with others and in their interpretation of what nurses do. It includes many clear, colorful examples and describes the five stages of skill acquisition, the nature of clinical judgement and experiential learning and the seven major domains of nursing practice. The narrative method captures content and contextual issues that are often missed by formal models of nursing knowledge. The book uncovers the knowledge embedded in clinical nursing practice and provides the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition applied to nursing, an interpretive approach to identifying and describing clinical knowledge, nursing functions, effective management, research and clinical practice, career development and education, plus practical applications. For nurses and healthcare professionals

Educating nurses : a call for radical transformation by Patricia E Benner( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The profession of nursing in the United States is at a significant moment. Since the last national nursing education study almost forty years ago, profound changes in science, technology, and the nature and settings of nursing practice have reshaped the field. Yet schools have lagged behind in adapting to these changes. Added to this, the profession faces a shortage of nurses and nursing faculty. To meet these challenges, the authors assert that schools, service providers, and the profession must change. They recommend four controversial yet essential changes that are needed to transform nursing education. A volume in The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teachings Preparation for the Professions series, the book discusses key topics for the future of the field and offers revolutionary recommendations for change

The crisis of care : affirming and restoring caring practices in the helping professions by Susan S Phillips( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a crisis in caring for persons that cuts across the boundaries of the helping professions. Patients in hospitals feel depersonalized, students suffer from inadequate attention, clients wonder if therapists really care about them, and parishioners feel unknown in their places of worship. Caregivers are rewarded for efficiency, technical skills, and measurable results, while their concern, attentiveness, and human engagement go unnoticed within their professional organizations and institutions. Arguing that moral judgment and human values must be restored to caregiving in order to revitalize our failing institutions, helping professionals and scholars join together in this volume to explore the ethic of care and the moral sources from which caregivers draw inspiration for their work. Contributors from the fields of medicine, nursing, teaching, ministry, sociology, psychotherapy, theology, and philosophy articulate their values, hopes, commitments, and practices both in theoretical essays and in narratives of caregiving that reveal the complexities of skillful practice. By combining stories of care, the reflections of caregiving practitioners, and interpretations of caregiving within a larger social and theoretical framework, this collection identifies the values and skills involved in quality caregiving at the individual level and affirms their importance for reshaping our public caregiving institutions
Clinical wisdom and interventions in critical care : a thinking-in-action approach by Patricia E Benner( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than reducing critical care to basic and easily understood principles, the authors attempt to ground critical care nursing in real time, in context, and in real practice situations. They take advantage of day-to-day nursing stories that illustrate the system of long-term care, and they allow these stories to highlight the concept of critical thinking involved in decision making. If there is an emphasis on the interdisciplinary team approach, then well-educated professionals can manage the unavoidable system breakdowns that occur, not with an emphasis on management of the breakdown but with an eye toward identifying the sources of breakdown and redesigning the system. This holistic view of management in critical care allows the continued development of a professional environment in critical care nursing, for both nurse administrators and nurses
