Description 

Updated to incorporate a leadership and management and interprofessional focus

The first book to address Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) undergraduate competencies, this clearly written text distills the fundamental knowledge and skills required of entry-level nurses in each of the six QSEN domains. The updated second edition features five completely new chapters on implementing quality and safety initiatives from a leadership and management perspective, and state-of-the-art information on quality improvement. New cases—particularly an evolving clinical case study--and real-life examples demonstrate practical application of the book’s content.

With contributions from nurses, physicians, pharmacists, librarians, and other health care professionals throughout the U.S. and beyond, the text underscores the interprofessional focus underlying health care practice today. A strong foundation for evidence-based health care pervades the text. Chapters reinforce learning with objectives, opening scenarios, case studies, interviews, critical thinking exercises, photos, tables, key concepts, key terms, clinical discussion points, review activities, NCLEX-style questions, web resources, and additional readings. An accompanying Instructors Guide provides additional questions and PowerPoint slides.
