This book presents the first comprehensive examination of issues important to nursing from the perspective of Complexity Science. In this groundbreaking volume, scholars and nurse leaders explore key Complexity Science principles and the profound implications they hold for clinical practice, leadership, nursing theory development, research, policy making, and understanding human physiology. Nursing students, practicing nurses, nurse educators, leaders, researchers, and other healthcare professionals will find great value in the fresh insights Complexity Science brings to challenges facing nursing today. Changes in the practice of nursing, emerging new roles, as well as heightened emphasis on healthcare quality present both risk and opportunity. Nurses who understand the emerging science of complexity will be better prepared to creatively face these issues and improve health in broad and lasting new ways.
