Lynnette Leeseberg Stamler is Professor and Graduate Chair at the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan. She is also President Elect of the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing. She holds degrees from St. Olaf College, the University of Manitoba, and the University of Cincinnati.

For the last 25 years, she has taught in basic and graduate nursing programs. With Lucia Yiu, she co-edited Community Health Nursing: A Canadian Perspective. The second edition was released in December 2007. Her research interests are all related to leadership in education—in the patient, nursing, and health education arenas.


Madeleine Buck is a faculty member at the McGill University School of Nursing and a clinical associate at the McGill University Health Centre. Her 30-year career in nursing has provided her with opportunities to work in acute care, community health, and educational settings. Her most recent experiences are with undergraduate and graduate nursing education, use of simulated learning in clinical education, program evaluation and accreditation, and interprofessional education. Her favourite work is with a group of nurses dealing with the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the Highlands of Tanzania. In 2006 she founded McGill Nurses for Highlands Hope to foster collaboration and development of nursing education and practice relationships across continents. Half of her royalties from the publication of this book will go toward supporting sustainable nursing projects originating from the Tanzanian Highlands Hope Nurse Counselor Network.

Impossible to fault the breadth of coverage of this volume, it is an essential reference throughout any nursing career. There are, however, two hidden problems which may make purcasing from Amazon a very unattractive prospect; one, the MyNursingLabs access code, which provides student access to numerous videos, concept tests and more, is NOT included in the cover price, whereas it is at most college bookstores. In paying out an extra $48 just for a code, I was quickly disenchanted with the original "saving" of 25$ over the school price. Secondly, UPS left the package on the doorstep in a busy street without bothering to knock- not ideal with a $150 textbook. So, a great product and an abyssmal experience buying it!

If you need this for school buy it from your school! No course code comes with it from amazon to use in the mynursinglab. I learned this the hard way.

If you need this book, buy the other one with the lab kit. It has access to online study help and questions. If you buy this one you will not get it. And I have learned my lesson. You want the one with the online learning to see how well your doing.

The books is formatted really nicely. The pages are of high quality paper with nice color images.

The book is relevant, informative, and easy to read. It is not too bogged down with details and tells you what you need to know.
