Nurses With Disabilities: Professional Issues and Job Retention

This book was published last October:

Nurses With Disabilities: Professional Issues and Job Retention
by Leslie Neal-Boylan, PhD, RN, CRRN, APRN, FNP-BC

"This book is a must for all healthcare managers, recruitment, occupational health, human resources and for all nurses working within the healthcare setting to gain a full understanding and dispel the myths and misconceptions surrounding disability. It should be on all student nurses reading lists."--Nursing Times

"This book will provide nurses with the information to make objective and fact based assessments...Moreover, it will arm nursing professionals with an understanding of how the issue of disability is affecting workforce supply in nursing, how accommodations can provide assistance to individuals with disabilities, and how a balanced and thoughtful approach can allow nursing professionals to function to their fullest."
