This text provides a critical examination of the development and implications of nurse prescribing in relation to patients and clients, to nurses themselves, and to the nursing profession in general. The professional issues relevant to nurse prescribing are discussed and examined within the current framework of community nursing and practical guidelines are given. This new edition addresses the broader range of nurses who will be required to prescribe from 2002, and the increasing variety of products which may be prescribed by them. New chapters consider ethical and legal issues, and provide case studies of nurse prescribing situations.
JENNIFER L. HUMPHRIES and JOYCE GREEN have been involved in teaching nurse prescribing since the original pilot scheme in 1994. Jennifer is Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire. Joyce was a member of the ENB Nurse Prescribing Working Group and now retired, she continues to work as an external examiner.
