This textbook explores questions which nurses ask about law. Many nurses experience law as a threat used by managers and teachers, and as something which stifles their professional practice. Offering a more balanced perspective, this book explains the law governing the work of the nursing profession simply, clearly and practically, and shows nurses that the law usually supports rather than restricts their professional values. It covers the legal framework of nursing, the law applying generally to nursing practice and that concerning the major patient and client groups and is invaluable for students and practicing nurses. '...a useful basic outline of law for nurses.' Nursing Times
