Overview


This concise essentials text, written by the authors of the popular Leadership Roles and Management Functions in Nursing, equips new nurses with invaluable leadership and management tools they need on the job. Developed for Associate Degree and LVN/LPN level nursing students, all case studies are aimed no higher than the charge nurse management level. An easy read with clear displays and tables, which emphasize core knowledge, this is an invaluable tool for the new nurse. Common stumbling blocks, such as effective time management, are addressed clearly and simply, and students will benefit from the practiced authors' own experience and skill. Reflective Questions in each chapter encourage the nurse to examine her own values, beliefs, and actions in developing common nursing management skills. The free accompanying ancillary  package for students and instructors includes NCLEX-style chapter review questions, a test generator, an ebook, and a PowerPoint presentation, along with suggestions for responding to each of the case studies and reflective questions.
