Hispanic Voices

Hispanic Voices

Progreso, Poder, y Promesa

Hispanics are the nation’s largest, youngest, and fastest-growing minority and will account for 74 percent of the growth of the labor force between 2010 and 2020; yet Hispanics are underrepresented in nursing and suffer health disparities and inadequate access to health care. Hispanic Voices: Progreso, Poder, y Promesa, (Progress, Power, and Promise) addresses these timely issues and provides educators with solutions to address the shortage of Hispanics in nursing education.


Framed by The Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (2011) report, Hispanic Voices: Progreso, Poder, y Promesa provides evidenced-based strategies for educators. Topics include a discussion of the future of the Hispanic Registered Nurse workforce in relation to improving quality of care and patient outcomes; nursing education and leadership; how to establish and maintain diversity in nursing education programs and how to retain Hispanic students in BSN programs; contributing factors and strategies to address the shortage of Hispanic nursing faculty; a profile of a student-led mentoring program for Hispanic nursing students; how to increase the Hispanic nursing workforce; perspectives on doctoral study abroad, the impact of globalization on nursing education, and studying abroad in Latin America; and the use of innovative technologies as a strategy to ensure Hispanic nursing student success.


The themes of progress, power, and promise are prominent throughout Hispanic Voices: Progreso, Poder, y Promesa as culture-specific and effective approaches for recruitment, education, and leadership of Hispanics in nursing are outlined. This collection of voices communicates a vision for Hispanics in nursing as well as a legacy of commitment, dedication, resolve, and ingenuity in addressing the complex issue of educating Hispanic nurses.

General Information
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
