Two books in one, for the price of one—all the issues and trends content your students need, plus leadership and management content.

The 5th Edition of this popular resource continues to prepare nurses to respond as leaders and managers in today’s workplace.

Whitehead (nursing, Nova Southeastern U.) et al. provide a guide to help new graduates make the transition to professional nursing practice. They focus on the knowledge and skills needed by the staff nurse as a member of the health care team and manager of patient care, emphasizing leadership and management aspects, and topics relating to professional considerations like working within an organization and dealing with problems and conflicts, and issues like healthy workplaces, stress and burnout, and careers. This edition has new chapters on quality and safety; an updated finance chapter and new chapter on health care policy on the website; updates to information on setting priorities, delegation, quality improvement, legal aspects, and ethical issues; more on situational leadership, followership, staffing, diversity, and team building; new discussions of the Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation framework for communication; more evidence-based practice content; and more integrated Canadian nursing content.
