About the Author
Dr. Patrick Coonan
is Dean and Professor at the School of Nursing at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York, where he also went to nursing school, as he likes to say, "125 years ago." Throughout his career, Dr. Coonan has held senior patient care management positions at major medical centers in the New York metropolitan area. He was the Chief Nursing Officer in an academic medical center, a health system, and a teaching community hospital and was a fellow in the Johnson & Johnson–Wharton Fellows Program in Management for Nurse Executives at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Coonan’s academic experience includes administrative and teaching positions at other academic institutions in the New York area, where he has developed technology-enhanced education programs and directed and taught informatics and critical care nursing as well as nursing leadership/management programs. Dr. Coonan received his Ed.D and M.Ed from Columbia University, a Master’s degree in Public Administration/Health Care Administration (MPA) from Long Island University, and a B.S. in Nursing from Adelphi University. He has consulted, written, and presented extensively on nursing management, leadership, nursing education, emergency service and response as well as healthcare management. His educational and consultative work now includes leadership assessment and education, integrating technology into nursing management and educational systems, improving and developing educational delivery models, executive coaching, nursing systems assessment and improvement, and leadership development. After reviewing the many NCLEX-RN review books on the market and recognizing that his faculty wasn’t happy with any of them, he decided to develop a book that tackles the serious subject of nursing and the NCLEX-RN with a lighter touch but is no less effective than more serious, straight-laced study guides. This book is the result.
