The Acute-Care Nurse Practitioner: A Transformational Journey

The Acute-Care Nurse Practitioner: A Transformational Journey by Judy Rashotte
English | Feb. 21, 2014 | ISBN: 1927356261 | 292 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

From the moment it was first proposed, the role of the nurse practitioner has been steeped in controversy. In the fields of both nursing and medicine, the idea that a nurse practitioner can, to some degree, serve as a replacement for the physician has sparked heated debates. Perhaps for that reason, despite the progress of the nurse practitioner movement, NPs have been reluctant to speak about themselves and their work, and their own vision of their role has thus remained largely invisible. Current research is dominated by instrumental and economic modes of discourse and tends to focus on the clinical activities associated with the role. Although information about demographics, educational preparation, position titles, reporting relationships, and costs of care contribute to our understanding, what was missing was an exploration of the lived experience of the nurse practitioner, as a means to deepen that understanding as well as our appreciation for their role.

By a Thread: How Child Care Centers Hold on to Teachers, How Teachers Build Lasting Careers

By a Thread: How Child Care Centers Hold on to Teachers, How Teachers Build Lasting Careers by Marcy Whitebook
English | Dec. 2003 | ISBN: 0880993006 | 159 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Whitebook and Sakai examine how child care programs and their staff subsist in a field characterized by low pay, low status, and high turnover, and what the impacts of these factors are on the quality of child care provided. Their study is based on an in-depth survey of 75 mid-size, relatively high-quality child care centers located in an economically thriving region. They collect data on salaries, training, and educational background for all teaching staff employed at the centers at three points in time—1994, 1996, and 2000. These data provide a detailed picture of the entire teaching workforce at the 75 centers in 2000 and allow a comparison of the workforce in that year to those in 1994 and 1996. This inside look paints a disturbing picture of a dedicated yet poorly paid, high-turnover workforce.
