Nursing Leadership and Management is based on the philosophy that all nurses are leaders who use creative decision making, entre- preneurship, and life-long learning to create a work environment that is efficient, cost-effective, and committed to quality care. With that in mind, the primary goal for the textbook is to provide broad and comprehensive coverage of leadership and management theories and processes by synthesizing information from nursing, health care, general administration and management, and leadership lit- erature and applying it to nursing. The book should engage readers with learning activities that will teach them how to research decision-making data (participatory action research process) and analyze and make reliable choices in managing their work environment. The content is based on research from several disciplines and provides a theory-based scholarly, yet practical, approach that is consistent with higher education.
