Format: Paperback
This book compliments other books about nursing leadership and management. It has seven units. Unit one introduces the American health care environment and basic health care economics. Unit two: A New Health Care Model has five chapters about evidence-based health care, nursing and health care informatics, population-based health care practice, personal and interdisciplinary communication and politics and consumer partnerships. Unit three: Planning Care contains six chapters about leadership and management, strategic planning and organizing patient care, effective team building, budget concepts for patient care, effective staffing and delegation of nursing care. Unit four: Managing Care: discusses first-line patient care management, patient teaching, change and conflict resolution, power and time management. Unit 5: Evaluation is about managing outcomes and decision making. Unit six: Other Professional Considerations has four chapters including legal aspects of patient care, ethical dimensions of patient care, cultural diversity and spirituality, and collective bargaining. The final unit: Preparation for Entry-Level Nursing Practice has one chapter about career planning. Chapters introduce the concept often with bulleted points, present case scenarios, case considerations, case analysis, key points, and list references and suggested readings. There are some figures and tables to help visualize the content. It has an index. These real life scenarios and analysis use communication and critical thinking throughout and are good supplemental material for use with other textbooks for teaching leadership and management.

Format: Paperback
The Case Applications book has been well utilized in my course and used for homework assignments requiring case canaylsis. Must be used with another text for supportive data.
