Overview

At last, a book about the nursing shortage that links nurses, managers, and physicians using conceptual, communication, and leadership approaches. Smart Nursing addresses critical healthcare issues such as patient safety and nurse retention. Smart Nursing is an easy system of cost effective strategies that removes obstacles that interfere with nurse productivity. It enables nurses to use their full professional capacity to deliver safe patient care in a variety of clinical settings. It blends heathcare knowledge with business expertise to address the bottom line for managers. In short, the dollar difference between the present level of nurse productivity and a nurse's full professional capacity is the potential cost savings that Smart Nursing offers.
