"This book is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to build and demonstrate their expertise as a healthcare leader. It is a must-read for individuals looking to advance their contributions to improving the health and well-being of those they serve. This fifth edition provides a comprehensive discussion on healthcare and the relationship nurses have with the rapidly evolving healthcare system. The field has evolved enough since the previous version to merit the publication of this new edition. As nurses, we must continue to evaluate and effectively respond to the progression of health care and all the mitigating factors impacting our patients, healthcare system, and global community."

Any nurse interested in pursuing an advanced degree will benefit from reading this book, as it delves into every area of practice with historical reference and future outlooks. Graduate students enrolled in a DNP program or individuals who have already secured a DNP may wish to invest in a book of this caliber.
