The long standing nursing shortage has prompted many institutions to rely on nurses to delegate critical tasks. Delegation of Nursing Care establishes safe delegation as an indispensable skill in delivering quality patient care. The book discusses the demanding roles of a professional nurse and explores the elements of decision making nurses use most. It also highlights the importance of communication, time management, and accountability, and is designed to build the diverse skills needed in the world of nursing.
