Effective Leadership and Management in Nursing will help you be an effective nursing manager. Today's rapidly changing, volatile healthcare environment demands highly developed management skills and superb leadership. The text combines practicality with conceptual understanding. It taps the expertise of contributors from many relevant disciplines, especially healthcare management.

The updated 9th edition offers new or expanded coverage of the Affordable Care Act and evolving models of healthcare. The text explores cultural and gender diversity; quality management; emotional leadership; social media; harassing, bullying, and lack of civility in healthcare. The revision also covers emergency preparedness for terrorism, disasters, 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."

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles on the Pearson+ app from My list on each of your authorized devices every month.

When you're using your Multi Pearson+ subscription plan in a browser, you can select and read from as many titles as you like.
