Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Ellen Wurzbach, RN, MSN, PhD (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book, according to the editor, offers insights and practical advice on leadership in nursing from 40 experts in education, administration, clinical practice, and research. It is a collection of some of the best articles published in Nursing Leadership Forum since its inception in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose of the book, as is that of the journal, is to provide a forum for nursing leaders to share their experience and knowledge of leadership.
Audience: The audience for the book could be graduate or undergraduate students and practitioners in leadership positions. As such, it is written for both current and aspiring leaders.
Features: The book is organized into four sections emphasizing the themes of change, empowerment, leadership, vision and self-development. In the first section "Getting Started," nurse leaders discuss what brought them to nursing, the risks they took, and their perspectives on leadership. The second section is entitled "Developing Leadership Skills" in which strategies and skills needed by nurse leaders are described such as developing a business plan, making a speech, fundraising, succession planning, and finding time for oneself. The third section, "Enhancing Patient and Employee Satisfaction," deals with human relations in leadership and topics such as empowerment, organizational climate, and shared governance. The final section, " Coping with Changing Institutions," is an excellent look at contemporary healthcare organizations with their numerous changes.
Assessment: This book highlights diverse topics that are seldom discussed in the nursing literature. Topics such as how to prepare for a presentation, fundraising, ethical leadership in managed care, and how to oversee the closing of an institution are seldom seen. As such the book provides anticipatory guidance for just about any leadership challenge a nurse leader could face. Not all of these challenges may be confronted by all nurse leaders, but each chapter is certain to meet the learning needs of individual, depending on the challenges they do have to meet. The book admirably answers leadership questions that will be addressed by most nurse leaders at some point in their career.
From The Critics
Drawn from the journal , these 29 articles discuss the skills, strategies, and vision leaders in the profession use to enhance patient and employee satisfaction and cope with institutional change. Business plans, speeches, succession planning, philanthropy, research project management, fundraising, empowerment, focus groups, cost cutting, displacement, mergers, and the challenges of managed care are specifically discussed. Contributors include academics, consultants, hospital administrators, clinicians, and of course, nurses. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
