Series: Service Learning in the Disciplines Series
Although service-learning and nursing would seem an obvious combination, nursing, as a profession within academic, research, and health-care organizations has only recently begun to embrace the true spirit of the practice. The chapters in this book, fourth in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series, are rich with information, both theoretical and experiential, that describes ways in which nursing has begun to incorporate service-learning as a methodology into many diverse settings and with communities of interest.
