Summary: qNurse Managers: A Guide to Practice (2nd edition) is an innovative and practical text that addresses the range of difficulties and challenges faced by nurse managers. After listening to comments from readers and colleagues this second edition has been comprehensively reviewed and updated. There has never been a greater need for nurse managers at an operational level to be skilled in the technical aspects of management. Nurse Managers are under increasing pressure from governments, industrial organisations, staff, and consumers of health services for greater accountability in all aspects of the nurse-management role. The authors are aware that nurse managers practise in a variety of healthcare settings, and the chapters have been prepared with this in mind. Nurse Managers in acute-care hospitals, mental-health facilities, and community settings will all find that this book is of practical assistance, as will those working in remote areas, day-care settings, and facilities for the aged. This book provides the evidence-based information and practical advice that all nurses who are contemplating a career in management require to undertake their very important role with growing confidence and expertise.q--Publisher description.WORKING WITH JOB DESCRIPTIONS The duty guide template on page 160 I NURSE MANAGERS ...
