Nursing: Its Hidden Agendas traces the origins of attitudes and behaviours, their historical, psycho-social and professional backgrounds, their cross-generational transmission and their cause and effect. These hidden agendas can seriously damage progress and change in the nursing profession and must be recognised and checked at all levels. This unique study is essential reading for managers, nurse teachers, practising nurses and students alike.
