Excellent text. Entering the nursing profession after twenty plus years in design and advertising. I found this text to be concise, informative, and useful. It was truly a refreshing read. I am now a senior in nursing school, and many of the textbooks I have been required to slog through for my nursing education have been insipid and long-winded. Authors seem to enjoy hearing themselves speak about their nursing experience without getting to the point of teaching me something useful. Marquis and Huston connect common sense leadership concepts to the nursing profession.
