Abstract

Today's nurses find themselves in the position of having to redefine their identity. They must ask themselves why they matter, what is important about them as professionals, and how they contribute as team members. In this innovative and stimulating book, Verena Tschudin draws on her research and expertise to bring together aspects of nursing and ethics in a fresh and challenging way. Starting from the premise that 'people matter', she develops a basis for a nursing identity which gives a new emphasis to individual and collective worth. Exploring the nature of nursing and the dilemmas facing today's professionals, she shares with students and colleagues her vision of nursing in the 21st century. This book will thus empower readers to discover fresh meaning in their work and role.
