Leadership and Management for Nurses prepares every nurse to be a leader. It examines critical issues in healthcare delivery and the leadership roles every nurse must play. The text focuses on five core competencies for healthcare professions: provide patient-centered care, work in interprofessional teams, employ evidence-based practice, apply quality improvement and utilize informatics. Engaging features, such as an evolving case study, hone your clinical reasoning skills and prepare you to enter managerial roles.

The 4th Edition is full of extensive new content and exercises. It uses a framework based on the quality initiative of the Institute of Medicine/National Academy of Medicine. New and expanded content on quality improvement reinforces this issue as central to healthcare delivery.
