Policy and Politics for Nurses and Other Health Professionals, Third Edition focuses on the idea that all healthcare providers require a fundamental understanding of the healthcare system including but not limited to knowledge required to practice their discipline. The text discusses how healthcare professionals must also prepare themselves to engage in the economic, political, and policy dimensions of health care.

The Third Edition offers a nursing focus with an interdisciplinary approach intertwined to create an understanding of healthcare practice and policy. The text is enriched through the contributions from nurses and other health professionals including activists, politicians, and economists who comprehend the forces of health care in America and their impact on the everyday provider.
