This text for early career nurses addresses foundations of leadership, stressing accountability, the complexity of organizational cultures, and the nurse's social mandate to serve the needs of the community. Coverage encompasses ethical foundations, change management, and conflict skills, as well as staffing and scheduling, the changing nature of clinical work, and negotiation skills. Critical-thinking boxes, reflection questions, scenarios, and chapter test questions are included in a color layout with many charts and diagrams. Most chapters contain several appendices offering tools such as sample documents, organizational assessment instruments, case studies, visual concept organizers, and leadership exercises. The student website contains chapter study aids and interactive glossaries, and the teacher website offers podcast summaries of each chapter, plus discussion and essay questions.
