Named an Outstanding Academic Title for 2008 by Choice!

"This much-needed, long-awaited collection of essays is critical for every nurse--from novice to expert--in every field of nursing. It highlights the fact that nurses are central and critical in the health care delivery system, and are indeed leaders not only in nursing but in the health system as well. As such, it will be especially valuable for nurses and other health care professionals. Summing Up: Essential."


"This excellent resource contains clear, concise definitions and entries related to the nursing profession .This is an at your fingertips quick reference book for busy healthcare nurse managers and leaders."


"We are delighted to introduce this book to a new generation of readers. The challenges in nursing, as well as in health care, have never been greater. The need for resources such as this text is profound."

--from the foreword by Joanne Disch, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Lillehei Chair in Nursing Leadership and Director, Katharine J. Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota, and Kathleen Dracup, DNSc, FNP, RN, FAAN, Dean and Chair of Nursing Education, School of Nursing, University of California, San Francisco

Nursing Leadership: A Concise Encyclopedia is an important reference for all leaders, both current and future, in health care. Its 180 entries, written by nursing luminaries, not only enhance our understanding of leadership--what it is and how it functions--but will help to promote effective leadership among nurses.

The encyclopedia is organized around nine themes, with five themes embracing the most salient management and leadership theories, including characteristics and skills required of leaders in today's complex health care system:

Characteristics of Leaders Management and Executive Skills Theories and Models of Management and Leadership Major Leaders in Nursing Professional Standards Health Care Delivery Standards and Health Policy Leadership in Practice, Education, and Research Quality Outcomes Informatics and Technology

The entries for each theme are varied and based on the assumption that while nurse clinicians, academics, and researchers share many of the same challenges, they must also adapt their leadership styles and visions to the unique challenges demanded by different roles and institutional missions. The book also includes rich materials on organizations and historical figures that have shaped the leadership role.

Nursing Leadership: A Concise Encyclopedia is an essential reference and learning tool for aspiring, novice, and accomplished leaders in nursing and allied health professions.
