About the Author
"I have not found another book like this with such detailed and comprehensive information in a multitude of areas. It will be a great help to nurse managers."
"This work is more than a mere academic attempt to define basic management concepts, but rather is a robust toolkit, providing real-life examples and experiences coupled with actual tools and techniques, allowing novice nurse managers to understand concepts such as supply chain management, financial management, and labor and productivity modeling. Additionally, this book serves as a roadmap to the successful implementation of these concepts. I think the author can be confident that there will be many grateful nurse leaders who will have gained a broader perspective of their evolving role, and about how to best implement those practices."
