For courses in nursing management in programs including baccalaureate degrees in generic and BSN completion, and graduate-level nursing programs; for education departments in health care organizations; for nurses in clinical practice who aspire to leadership; and for nurses already in leadership positions.

 

More than ever before, today’s rapidly changing, volatile healthcare environment demands highly developed management skills and superb leadership. Effective Leadership and Management in Nursing will help both practicing and student nurses manage successfully today, as well as into the future. This book combines practicality with conceptual understanding, tapping expertise of contributors from many relevant disciplines, especially healthcare management professionals. Updated to reflect the current state of healthcare, the Ninth Edition offers new or expanded coverage of the Affordable Care Act; evolving models of healthcare; cultural and gender diversity; quality management; emotional leadership; social media; harassing, bullying, and lack of civility in healthcare; emergency preparedness for terrorism, disasters, and mass shootings; and prevention of workplace violence. Two new chapters round out this award-winning text: “Understanding Legal and Ethical Issues” and “Imagining the Future.”
