For all courses in leadership or management in nursing


Core competencies that help each student think like a nurse
Leadership and Management for Nurses: Core Competencies for Quality Care
offers a current perspective on leadership and management in nursing, and gives nurses a thorough understanding of what it takes to lead in delivering quality health care. Reflecting the Institute of Medicine’s influential framework, the book emphasizes five core competencies: providing patient-centered care; working in interdisciplinary teams; employing evidence-based practice; applying quality improvement; and utilizing informatics. Two entirely new chapters examine critical issues in healthcare delivery today. Expanded end-of-chapter Applying Leadership and Management features encourage students to think like nurses as they hone their clinical-reasoning skills, apply competencies, and engage with the content.
