Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines how nurse educators shape the political behavior of nurses.

Although they represent a significant majority of American health care providers, nurses have had only a limited influence on policy developments in the health care and political systems. Helping to understand why the profession has remained a "sleeping giant," Nurse Educators and Politics focuses on a primary socialization agent to the profession: nursing faculty members. Using survey data, Sondra Z. Koff examines nurse educators' attitudes toward select public policies and political participation, as well as their political and organizational activism. These findings are related to nursing's professional history and are discussed in a broader political context to better understand nurses' behavior in the decision-making process.

“This short book is easy to read … is a great addition to a personal library for those serving in educator roles … and … should be added to a recommended reading list for nursing courses.” — AORN Journal 

"Koff highlights an issue that is of significant importance today, as the shortage in the profession has become more acute, enrollment in nursing programs is down, and the health care system continues to face increasing difficulties. Her grasp of all the salient factors which have impacted the profession to relinquish or ignore its role in the political arena is noteworthy." — Marie A. Reed, Consultant

"This excellent book will provoke controversy and a reexamination of curricula in nursing education." — Cathryne A. Welch, Director of the Bellevue Alumnae Center for Nursing History and Director of the Center for Nursing Research at the Foundation of the New York State Nurses Association

Sondra Z. Koff is Professor Emerita of Political Science at Binghamton University, State University of New York. She is the author of Health Systems Agencies: A Comprehensive Examination of Planning and Process and coauthor (with Stephen P. Koff) of Italy: From the First to the Second Republic.
