Product Description

Presents a model of nursing practice describing five levels of competency. Each level is described in the words of nurses who were interviewed and observed individually and in small groups, in patient care situations where the nurse made a positive difference in patient outcome. Asserts that perceptual awareness is central to good nursing judgement and that this begins with intuition followed by critical analysis. Discussion encompasses the helping role, the phenomenon of caring, management of rapidly changing situations, and collaborative relationships. Benner teaches in the Department of Physiological Nursing at the University of California School of Nursing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
