Overview

Nursing administration, for all its diversity and dimensions, is the work of any RN engaged in leadership and oversight of services or staff across all practice settings. This expanded concept of the nurse administrator beyond nurse executive or nurse manager is central to this new edition. From such expanded recognition of who nurse administrators are, where they practice, and how they influence healthcare environments and organizations, comes a full update of the essential guide to the specialty.

Detailed discussion of the frameworks for nursing administrator practice and the numerous key elements of the nurse administrator role, and a deep grounding in the literature, distinguish this edition, as does a new view into the variety and dimensions of the nurse administrator's leadership and oversight. Viewing the levels of oversight or sphere of influence and authority leads to a more accurate classification than job titles, and usefully conveys the expanding range of this specialty. These include:

Organization-wide

Program-focused

Unit-based or service-line-based

Project- or specific task-based

Reflecting the rapid advances in this practice specialty and building on the 2004 edition (complete text is included), Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice is a foundational volume that articulates the essentials of this specialty, its accountabilities and activities-the who, what, when, where, and how of its practice-for any such nurse and those who work with them.

The standards themselves-six for nursing practice and ten for nursing professional performance-are those by which all nurses in this specialty practice. Each standard is made morespecific and usable by its set of measurement criteria, and completes the delineation of the perspectives and priorities of nursing administration. The book's summary discussion of its scope of practice-its characteristics, development and trends, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its practice roles, its ethical and conceptual bases-lends a broad context for understanding and using these standards. Also: meeting these standards is a required component of the Magnet Recognition Program.

While Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice is a reference and guide primarily for practicing nurses and nursing faculty and students, it is also an essential source document for other nurse administrators, healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars, along with those involved in funding, legal, policy, and regulatory activities.
