Excerpt from FOREWORD
The second edition of The Moral Work of Nursing will continue to be of interest to student nurses, nurses who wish to reflect on their own practice, nurse leaders at every level, nurse historians, and anyone studying ethics in nursing practice. At a time when it is increasingly important for us to reflect on and defend the values that ought to inform Canadian healthcare and nursing practice, Ms Magnussen’s book is a treasure.
