Oncology nursing management demands tremendous expertise, commitment, and the ability to manage a complex and important set of responsibilities. As key members of their healthcare teams, nurse managers are responsible for recruiting, developing, counseling, mentoring, and retaining their nursing staffs. With health reform legislation looming and a diverse set of challenges presenting themselves each day, nursing management has never been more complicated and nursing leaders need resources and tools to support the constantly shifting demands in healthcare management. The second edition of Nursing Management: Principles and Practice provides an in-depth review of general and oncology nursing management principles to guide the practice and development of nurse managers involved with cancer care. Editor Mary Magee Gullatte, a respected leader in oncology nursing and management, has once again recruited an expert roster of leaders in nursing practice, research, and management to provide you with a diverse and comprehensive picture of nursing management. This second edition features 46 chapters and nearly 1,000 pages, nearly 40 percent larger than the last edition. You ll find updated chapters on leadership development, management theory, organizational design, human resource management, and financial management with practical steps for nurses working as entry-level managers As with the first edition, this resource provides real-world examples for nursing management and will prove of equal value to the clinical nurse or nursing student learning the management role as well as the established nursing leader. This new edition also comes with a CD-ROM containing PowerPoint slides for each chapter that you can use in training and exercises.
