Leading and managing are essential skills for all nurses Lin today's rapidly changing health care arena. New graduates find themselves man grog unlicensed assistive personnel, and experienced nurses are managing groups of health care providers from a variety of disciplines and educational levels. Declining revenues and increasing costs mandate that every organization use its resources efficiently. Thus, nurses are challenged to manage effectively with fewer resources. Never has the information presented in this textbook been needed more. Effective Leadership & Management in Nursing, Sixth Edition, can help both student nurses and those with practice experience acquire the skills needed to ensure success in today's dynamic health care environment.
