The ultimate goal for DNP leaders is to develop skills that will support their ability to lead effectively through complex challenges, such as working with colleagues from a variety of disciplines, working within the constrictions of tight budgets, initiating healthcare policy change to eliminate health disparities, and improving healthcare outcomes at all levels of care. The text is an invaluable instructional guide for graduate students who are developing the skills needed to fulfill this new and emerging role of clinical leadership within the complex healthcare environment. It provides critical information and practical tools for leadership that can transform healthcare practice. Drawing from the works of experts in business and healthcare leadership, it is also an important resource for NP students, practitioners, and current clinical leaders dealing with the challenges of healthcare for the next generation.
