Overview

THE NURSE MANAGER'S SURVIVAL GUIDE is a clear, concise, "hands-on" practical guide that provides basic information for nurse managers who have received little or no management training. Designed for quick reference, this application-oriented handbook is filled with practical, realistic tips and techniques to ease the transition from staff nurse to staff manager. Included in the extensively revised second edition are suggestions for coping with the changes and stresses brought about by restructuring, reorganizing, and reengineering in health care facilities: coverage of the major health care issues and concerns that are concomitant with the widespread adoption of managed care and case management; increased emphasis on the unique needs and concerns of home care managers, including special "Considerations for Home Care Managers" boxes at the end of many chapters; expanded coverage of delegation; and a broadened focus throughout the book on continuous quality improvement (CQI) as an integral part of all management functions and daily operations.
