This book helps prepare and teach nurses to be effective leaders so that they may advance the profession of nursing and health care practice as a whole.
This first book of its kind will fill the leadership development void not previously addressed in nursing education. Nurses are presented with the challenge of leading a variety of groups in our healthcare environment, ranging from patients and families to communities and organizations. While there appears to be little time for leadership development. leadership skills are in great demand. Broken down by the varying roles a nurse leader needs to play and using proven strategies from schools across the United States, Feldman and Greenberg are able to provide a model that students can follow to develop their own leadership skill set within both clinical and community settings.
