Published in 1984 and still in print! Many of us knew from first reading that this book was destined to be a classic. The work provides two valuable contributions. Actual patient care experiences reported by 1200 respected nurses were described and analyzed. What nurses actually do is presented in clear discussion using commonly understood language. The Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisistion is then applied to this analysis of expert nursing practice. This view into the "mystery"of nursing contributes to understanding and appreciation of the unique role of this essential healthcare discipline. It is likely to be valuable to physicians, administrators and others whose work is interdependent with that of nurses as well as speaking directly to nurses. Understanding a skill acquisition process as it applies to the profession of nursing has direct relevancy both for basic educational preparation and for practice models and work assignments. Many applications, articles and books have and continue to grow from this original work. However, I still find repeated reasons to return to this primary source and the book continues to hold a special place on my desk top.

An interesting, but unbalanced case for the preservation and empowerment of the skilled nurse within the institution of Medicine. Problems arise when Benner invokes a problematic insider (nurse)/outsider (non-nurse) duality to make a case that nursing work can only be 'known' by nurses. Nursing is in a bad way, but the claims made in this book have too many holes to offer long term solutions.
