Public Policy and Canadian Nursing offers an extensive overview of health policy and the expanding role of nurses in Canada.

Focusing specifically on the larger nursing profession, Michael J.

Villeneuve examines how health politics, funding, and practices have been reformed in ways that influence nurses and their involvement in policy-making decisions. The three modules cover: the basics of health care policy, terminology, and governance; the history and evolution of health care in Canada and population health status; and models for establishing new policies, and the systematic challenges that lie ahead. Unique from other texts published in the discipline, this guide will help students enter the nursing workforce as effective leaders, prepared to manage teams, programs, organizations, and systems, by enlightening their understanding of the way health care services are structured, funded, and evaluated.
