Description: This book describes the process for project plan development, implementation, and evaluation and includes reflection questions, suggested readings, and learning activities.
Purpose: It aims to teach or enhance readers' project management skills. These are useful goals as nurse leaders are in a position to advance nursing practice by improving the quality of patient care through project management.
Audience: The target audience includes clinical nurse leaders, DNPs, and nurse executives. The editors are experienced in the field as are the many contributors.
Features: From refining the question to dissemination of the results, this book covers the steps in project development. Two chapters deal with voices from the field, where nurse leaders and faculty share their experiences and offer best project plans. This book contains many strategies, techniques, and exemplars to show application of the concepts. Features of the book include chapter objectives, key terms, summaries, evidence-based examples, boxed articles, case studies, and review questions in addition to the reflection questions and learning activities.
Assessment: This would be an excellent resource for a capstone course for its audience and can serve as a subsequent resource. The book is easy to read and the examples bring the content alive.
