Book Preface

We are delighted to bring our readers this Sixth Edition of Essentials of Nursing Leadership and Management. This new edition has been updated to reflect the dynamic health care environment, safety initiatives, and changes in nursing practice. As in our previous editions, the content, examples, and diagrams were designed with the goal of assisting the new graduate to make the transition to professional nursing practice.

The Sixth Edition of Essentials of Nursing Leadership and Management focuses on the necessary knowledge and skills needed by the staff nurse as an integral member of the interprofessional healthcare team and manager of patient care. Issues related to setting priorities, delegation, quality improvement, legal parameters of nursing practice, and ethical issues are updated for this edition. This edition focuses on the current quality and safety issues and initiatives impacting the current health-care environment. We continue to bring you comprehensive, practical information on developing a nursing career. Updated information on leading, managing, followership, and workplace issues continue to be included.

Essentials of Nursing Leadership and Management provides a strong foundation for the beginning nurse leader. We would like to thank the people at F. A. Davis for their assistance and our contributors, reviewers, and students for their guidance and support.
