Overview

Current mainstream books and publicity about management and administration in health care are concerned with the takeover of health care by managed-care organizations. Many provide lots of quick and externally focused answers. Many of them are economically driven, to the exclusion of humans, values, ethics, and the human spirit of all those who pass through systems as deliverers and receivers of care. On the other hand, there is a new generation of works that address new forms of administration and leadership-works that inspire and evoke foundational changes in health care and forms of organizational leadership and management. This work by Dr. Jan Nyberg is guided by a lifelong career of administration and management that is informed by deeper human dimensions of caring, and more lasting approaches to change than quick-fix, economic takeovers.

Jan Nyberg, an experienced nursing administrator, scholar, and educator, knows another way-from the inside out rather than the outside in. She brings forth her wisdom and knowledge, experiences, and insights so that others may now grasp another way to transform systems for delivery of human caring and healing. This work informs, instructs, and inspires; it invites nurse leaders and other health administrators to reach for what might be, rather than succumbing to what already is.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Combines nursing theory and organizational theory to emphasize that the nurse's attention should remain focused on caring for the patient. Nyberg (nursing care delivery, U. of Colorado School of Nursing in Denver) employs Jean Watson's theory of caring as well as her own experiences as a nursing administrator to show how Watson's theory can be put into practice. The goal of the book is to create a path for nurse leaders to administer a more caring and compassionate system, while remaining accountable for organizational management, costs, and economic forces.
