Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: Unlike many other books in this field, this one concentrates fully on leadership concepts and issues for the clinical nurse, instead of management directives, which are usually found in leadership books. The complexity of contemporary organizational cultures is used as a framework for each chapter. Nursing's social mandate is integrated throughout.
Purpose: It is intended as a seminal resource on the concepts of leadership and strategies to develop leadership for nurses in general and nursing students in particular.
Audience: The book is specifically geared toward upper level nursing students to aid in their transition from student to professional nurse, but it also would be an excellent resource on leadership and professional issues for any nurse.
Features: The 15 chapters cover topics such as transitioning to the professional role, conflict skills for clinical leaders, and resources for healthcare excellence. Each chapter begins with objectives and includes reflective questions, real-life scenarios, critical thought boxes, discussion questions, and chapter test questions. Student resources are available on a companion website, as is an instructor manual with PowerPoint presentations and a test bank, as well as author podcasts.
Assessment: This book is filled with essential information for the transition into professional nursing. Interactive exercises are abundant, making it an excellent educational tool. The authors bring years of leadership experience to this book and deliver the information in an easy-to-understand, straightforward style. It is a standout among the available books on leadership.
