Preparing every nurse to be a leader.
Leadership and Management for Nurses: Core Competencies for Quality Care examines critical issues in healthcare delivery and the leadership roles every nurse must play.

Engaging features, such as an evolving case study, hone students’ clinical ┬┐reasoning skills and prepare them to enter managerial roles. Full of extensive new content and exercises, the 4th edition uses a framework based on the quality initiative of the Institute of Medicine/National Academy of Medicine.
