Overview

Mary Ann Anderson's personal, easy-to-read style covers the most sophisticated content in a manner that you, the LPN/LVN student, will easily understand. This new 3rd edition combines the early curriculum content covered in her acclaimed To Be a Nurse: Personal/Vocational Relations for the LPN/LVN text with the late curriculum leadership and management content found in the previous editions of this book. This approach provides you with the only book that you will need to examine professional practice issues throughout the entire LPN/LVN curriculum.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mary Allen Carey, PhD (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing)
Description: This book on leadership, management, and practice for the LPN/LVN uses a case-study format driven by clear objectives.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide LPNs/LVNs with the knowledge they need to assume the leadership-management roles asked of them. The author has achieved the objectives.
Audience: The book is written for LPN/LVN educators and students. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The emphasis of the book is on humanistic aspects of caring based on the nursing science theory of Dr. Jean Watson. The book's 19 chapters are grouped into two units — the nursing profession in today's healthcare environment and the student transition to nurse.
Assessment: This book is unique in focus. The differentiation of nursing leadership and management at all levels of nursing is an extremely important task.
