Leadership Roles And Management Function In Nursing, 8th Edition (PDF), the #1-selling textbook for the course, helps BSN-level students develop the skills they will need on the job—from organizing patient care and motivating staff to manage conflict and working collaboratively. The authors provide a concise, user-friendly synthesis of application and theory and a unique focus on critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision making. Over 240 case studies are drawn from a variety of health care settings, including 15-25 NEW cases that focus on the new nurse or first-level manager.

The Eighth Edition provides a stronger focus on leadership and evidence-based decision-making. It includes updated coverage of a wide range of new topics, including patient safety and quality, health care financing (Obama Care), the impact of technology on health care, the impact of the 2010 IOM Recommendations for the Future of Nursing, and more. In addition, the ebook includes new displays and tables, new case studies, and new exercises.
