Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Connie J. Rowles, RN, DSN (Indiana University School of Nursing)
Description: This book contains content usually covered in leadership and management texts. The prior edition of the text was published in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose of the text from the editorr's point of view is to " . . .fill a need for a text that focuses on the nursing leadership and management issues of today and tomorrow in a totally new way." This book is definitely needed and most certainly meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: The main audience, as stated by the editor, is the baccalaureate level nursing student. The editor is well-credentialed.
Features: In addition to content areas usually incorporated into leadership and management texts, this book also includes chapters on consumer relations and cultural diversity in the workplace. It includes many items to assist in student learning, including an extensive glossary, research and literature perspectives, theory boxes, manager's challenges, highlighted areas for important content, chapter objectives, and checklists. Color is used throughout to identify many of these areas. Inclusion of a student workbook with this text is a major positive addition to the prior edition. The workbook contains individual and group exercises that should help encourage student interaction. Videotapes and an instructor's resource manual are also available. No obvious shortcomings were noted.
Assessment: This is an excellent text, which is vastly improved over the prior edition. There are many strong graphic and organizational techniques that should stimulate student interest and learning. This text should definitely facilitate student learning more than other texts available that cover much the same material.
