About this book


The Clinical Nurse Specialist (C.N.S.) works across a huge range of practice areas. Despite this, certain common issues arise, and it is these issues which are addressed in this book. Each contributor examines a different facet of the C.N.S. role, be it practitioner, educator, researcher or consultant. Discussion is linked to practice through the use of examples based on the writer's own experience. This is the first British text to deal with questions of common interest to the C.N.S. The intention is to raise the debate to the nature of the role and acknowledge the vital contribution Clinical Nurse Specialists have to make to the continuing development of the quality of individual nursing care.
