The second edition delivers new content to reflect the changing roles and responsibilities of today’s APRN and is consistent with project management concepts defined by the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) and the American Nurses Association (ANA). Case scenarios are Included in each chapter to reinforce practical applications, along with critical thinking questions and activities.
