From a uniquely Canadian perspective, Realities of Canadian Nursing explores the most important and timely professional, legal, ethical, political, social, economic, and environmental issues today. The value of this text is that students’ gain a knowledge base of issues and trends while the authors transform their thinking and inspire students to participate in political action alongside the generations of nurses who have already taken the lead. Influential scholars throughout Canada critically analyze and do not shy away from the tensions and contradictions that exist between nurses’ legislated authority to self-regulate and the changing nature and realities of nurses’ work while inspiring more nurses to influence decision making in professional associations, collective bargaining units, government, and workplace. Realities of Canadian Nursing helps students understand the long-standing barriers to many of the issues that confront nurses and the Canadians who seek nurses’ services. With this understanding, graduates will be in the best position to make contributions to their resolution.
The authors know that students can learn about issues and trends in nursing and healthcare in a variety of ways, and they go to great lengths to ensure the text offers readers more than an update on issues in nursing and healthcare. In chapter 1 of the text, the authors offer a Framework for Analysis, which gives students and educators a shared and organized format through which to identify, analyze, and most importantly, to strategize about solving the issues. An explicit goal of the Realities of Canadian Nursing is to model for students how changes to nursing and healthcare can only happen with informed political action on the part of nurses. The text also guides students through a reflection on how they can change the conversation in healthcare and give voice to the unheard concerns of nurses. In this edition, the authors will retain the content and features that have made this text the mostly widely used issues and trends book in the Canada, while creating space for new and emerging health care issues  including Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the subsequent Calls to Action.
Our text is packaged with learning/teaching tools designed to prepare students for the NCLEX as well as help faculty integrate their course resources with their required text. We also offer Powerpoint presentations, an Image Bank, Strategies for Effective Teaching, and Case Study Scenarios with related short answer questions and answers that can be assigned for homework or used in class.

General Information

EU Orders/Brexit Note: There will be an additional cost from UPS for orders shipped to the EU of £4.15 per carton. This will be payable by the customer in addition to any VAT and import duties.

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 subsidised by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA based 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 and are replenished on a regular basis.
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping cost to you. Shipping and delivery are however two different things. We ship 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.
We currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. So purchase as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one low 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 warehouse. The UK & 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. If you need to chase up a book/chart/model delivery we can provide tracking for you.
