Thoroughly updated and revised, Leadership and Nursing Care Management, 3rd Edition, addresses basic issues such as law and ethics, staffing and scheduling, delegation, cultural considerations, and management of time and stress while providing readers with the core concepts that separate adequate and exceptional nurse managers. It presents a research-based blend of practice and theory in an easy-to-read writing style that won the previous edition an AJN Book of the Year award.

  • A Leadership & Management Behaviors box in each chapter easily outlines in bulleted lists skills necessary for both leaders and managers in that content area, as well as appropriate behaviors that overlap the two roles.
  • Research Notes in each chapter summarize timely key studies, using a consistent format to outline the purpose, discussion, and application to practice of each study and introduce the students to the expanding body of literature in nursing management.
  • Bulleted lists of chapter objectives and summaries "bookmark" the beginning and end of each chapter discussion to emphasize the key concepts students should master.
  • Study Questions follow each chapter's summary points, asking students not only to recall specific chapter content but also to synthesize what they've learned.
  • Critical Thinking Exercises round out each chapter, challenging students to process, evaluate, and apply the chapter content.
