Nurses in this first decade of the twenty-first century are facing previously unconsidered challenges. Global workforce shortages are critical: the rate of nurses leaving the profession is accelerating combined with a growing difficulty in attracting new nurses.
Nursing care is increasing in its technological complexity with a consequent rise in occupational stress. Within this challenging work environment, the nurse manager's role is a crucial and demanding one. Nurse Managers: A Guide to Practice provides the nurse manager with the essential tools and strategies needed to be effective under pressure.
Building on the success of the first edition, this extensively revised text covers topics such as:
making the transition to management
occupational Health and Safety
maintaining quality of care
An international team of experienced nurses has again crafted a range of practical, eminently readable chapters that offer practical advice and ideas for the nurse manager.
