Nursing is a global, dynamic and changing profession in which there is a substantial and important area of literature which charts nursing knowledge and theory. Through study of the topic it is possible to discern clear phases and themes in this development and to capture the debates as to how this knowledge influences and shapes nursing practice. These three volumes will cover the scope of international publications in nursing knowledge, models and theories and take a critical, retrospective review of these works. The volumes encompass empirical and conceptual works and will cover significant knowledge and key debates in the field, as well as including more contemporary works to signal future trends.
The collection is categorised and sorted thematically into three volumes to enable clear navigation and understanding of the material, and an introduction written by the editors frames the set, providing guidance and context.
