Relied upon by faculty as a centerpiece for their health policy courses, the newly updated Fourth Edition of Health Policy and Politics: A Nurse’s Guide continues to expand on the relationship between health policy and politics as they relate to the field of nursing.

- A completely updated chapter on economics
- The most current information on the politics surrounding health policy
- The Institute of Medicine's (IOM) Future of Nursing paper is integrated throughout the text
- A fantastic Companion Website complete with online activities to aid student learning
