Educating the Next Generation of Nurse Leaders

Leadership in Nursing Practice: The Intersection of Innovation and Teamwork in Healthcare Systems, Fourth Edition is committed to developing the next generation of nurses. The Fourth Edition continues to provide students with the tools and knowledge they need to develop solid leadership skills to be successful in a clinical nursing career. This contemporary text addresses a variety of current topics such as mental health and wellness for nurses, burnout signs and solutions, as well as crisis response, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Emphasis on the role of critical thinking as it relates to evidence-based practice is also central to this edition. Lastly, the authors leverage their expertise and experience to encourage new nurses to be innovative and advocate for change within both nursing and across healthcare.

The Fourth Edition focuses on how crisis can be a catalyst of both innovation and change. The authors outline the steps necessary to enact change and demonstrate the importance of aligning the whole organization during the process.

Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"I love this book. It is colorful, easy to read, and full of wonderful information! The reflective questions and scenarios are very helpful. It includes additional surveys, assessments, and valuable tools for teamwork and management in various practice settings. The information is current and different than that found in other leadership books, such as how to give a podium presentation, how to handle collective bargaining, or how to negotiate for salary. This is a wonderful resource for anyone involved in healthcare leadership."
