Nursing and Globalization in the Americas: A Critical Perspective

Karen Lucas Breda, associate professor in the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) and director of Project Horizon, edited the book, Nursing and Globalization in the Americas: A Critical Perspective (c.2009). The book examines the history and politics of nursing in the Americas through case studies from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

According to medical anthropologist Merrill Singer in the preface, the book "critically explores the intersections among political economies and nursing and health care systems" and "brings social science insight to understanding the intricacies of unique local histories and social configurations of nursing."

Baywood Publishing writes that the book "offers a new platform for understanding the struggles and obstacles of nursing in a climate of globalization, as well as for understanding nursing's richness and accomplishments."
