More and more, health care in America is being delivered in community-based facilities. With this change in our health care system comes a greater awareness among educators to expose students in the health professions to rural clients and rural environments and make them aware of the challenges still faced by rural health professionals. Orientation to Nursing in the Rural Community examines the evolving health care delivery systems and role of nursing within the rural context. Divided into three parts including perspectives from experts in Australia and Canada, the book covers the foundations of rural nursing, special populations, and future perspectives. Students of nursing will find special features in each chapter extremely helpful: such as a list of objectives, key terms, points to remember, suggested research activities, and discussion questions.
