Product description


"This new edition continues to have an accessible style much needed by those students of health care new to sociology. The selected topics are tackled from a practitioner?s perspective, with questions at the end of each chapter to help explore and apply the material in more detail. A new chapter tackling the impact of globalization is welcomed. This is an ideal textbook for students of all branches of nursing and midwifery, particularly in the early years, or for those revisiting the underpinning disciplines supporting nursing practice. A relevant, enjoyable read supported by good references and recommendations for further reading."
Jane Alderton, University of Brighton

"This clearly written introduction to sociology demonstrates the relevance of the subject to nursing. After considering social divisions in relation to health and health care, the book then explores where and how health care takes place and, finally, gives an overview of health and related government policy."
Paul Godin, City University, London

From the Back Cover

Since its publication, Sociology for Nurses has become a leading textbook in the field and an invaluable companion for students wishing to understand how sociology can help nursing practice.

This thoroughly revised and updated new edition maintains its commitment to providing jargon–free explanations of sociological theories and evidence to show how studying sociology can be useful in all branches of professional nursing practice. Clearly written, and carefully illustrated, the new edition includes a whole new chapter on global health, as well as recent developments in health policy and a dedicated website with extra resources for students.

In addition, the book provides:

  • clearly–defined learning aims
  • a useful glossary of sociological concepts
  • structured activities and questions for discussion
  • annotated suggestions for further reading

Both editors have a wealth of experience teaching sociology to nurses at diploma and degree pre–registration and post–registration levels. Their book will continue to spark interest and debate among all student nurses, particularly those approaching sociology for the first time.
