Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary L. Fisher, PhD, RN, CNAA (Indiana University School of Nursing)
Description: This book, produced by the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), is designed to spark insight into nursing's future and to provide a vision for leading nursing successfully through the maze of changes in healthcare today. It is part of the AONE Leadership Series.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate how nursing leaders can manage future trends, deal with inevitable change, make appropriate decisions in complex environments, educate nurses for future roles, and learn from best practices. The seven authors of the six essays attempt to address all of these concerns
Audience: This book is intended for nurse executives, to recommend best practices in relation to nursing's future needs. The struggle of nursing as an essential human service versus nursing as a business is illustrated in the essays. The authors are established and respected nursing leaders with experience and credibility.
Features: The book uses illustrations to present models of the authors' perspectives. The references are current and pertinent. Although a glossary is provided, there is no index to assist readers in finding key words. The book is simply and cleanly presented. One case study on a market-driven environment is included.
Assessment: In the midst of the "corporatization" of healthcare systems, nursing needs new leadership, vision and emphasis. This book's contribution is its emphasis on integration skills that assist redesigning both organs and processes of care delivery as care is provided to the customer in nontraditional settings. Seamless care delivery and assisting staff with role change are additional themes.
From the Publisher
