Written specifically for the experienced nurse enrolled in an RN to BSN program, this text guides nurses through an interactive critical-thinking process to become effective and confident nurse leaders. All nurses involved with direct patient care already rely on similar strategies to oversee patient safety, make care decisions, and integrate plan of care in collaboration with patients and families. This text expounds upon that knowledge and provides a firm base to reach the next steps in academia and practice, enabling the BSN-prepared nurse can tackle serious issues in care delivery with a high-level of self-awareness and skill.

Leadership and Management Competence in Nursing Practice relies on a keen understanding of what experienced nurses already bring to the classroom. Written in a clear and concise manner, this text provides a core framework and useful skills and strategies to successfully lead nursing and healthcare forward. Chapters delve into discussions of leadership skills and personal attributes of leaders with minimal repetition of material covered in associate degree program. Content builds on the framework of AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education, IOM Competencies, and QSEN KSAs. Each chapter is filled with case scenarios to promote critical-thinking and decision-making. Self-assessment tools featured throughout the text enable nurses to evaluate their current strengths, areas for growth, and learning needs.
