Author Rebecca Patronis Jones developed this comprehensive text on the philosophy that all nurses are leaders who use creative decision making, entrepreneurship, and life-long learning to create a work environment that is efficient, cost-effective, and committed to quality care. This exceptional book provides broad and comprehensive coverage of leadership and management theories and processes by synthesizing information from nursing, health care, general administration and management, and leadership literature. Readers are engaged with opportunities to participate in learning activities that will teach them how to research decision-making data (participatory action research process) and analyze and make reliable choices in managing their work environment. Theory-based, scholarly yet practical, "Nursing Leadership and Management" is the most comprehensive and engaging baccalaureate text on the market!
