Rural Nursing, Volume 1
SAGE Publications, Apr 1, 1991 - Medical - 424 pages
Delivering health care to rural populations in comparison to urban populations requires unique considerations due to the geographic, social and cultural differences that must be taken into consideration. These volumes provide a basis for anticipating issues and options confronting rural nurses in the future. The first volume discusses background and theory necessary for the study of rural nursing and vulnerable rural populations such as pregnant women, heart patients and people with AIDS. Addressing a wide range of concerns of interest to rural nurses, Rural Nursing makes a much-needed contribution to the literature of the field.
