The Nurse Manager’s Survival Guide (Case of 18)
New 4th Edition!
As a nurse, you are already a manager. You must manage patient caseloads and care plans as well as supervise aides, technicians, and other care providers. But moving from this type of management to a defined nurse manager or supervisory role is not a natural progression. Nurse managers must command a vast, diverse, and robust skill set, and those skills must first be defined, explained, and operationalized for success. In an environment that offers new managers little support, or when you transition to a new organization or role–where do you turn?
The Nurse Manager’s Survival Guide (4th Ed.) provides an overview of a nurse manager’s major roles and responsibilities-all the fundamentals needed for success in one easy-to-use, consolidated, practical reference. Practical answers to everyday challenges are discussed and presented in a conversational manner. From tips on building the right team to budgeting basics, time-management tools, and advice on taking care of yourself (and your team), best-selling author Tina Marrelli supplies the resources new and experienced nurse managers need to excel in day-to-day operations.
