Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership, School of Nursing, University of Minnesota, and Kathleen Dracup, DNSc, FNP, RN, FAAN, Dean and Chair of Nursing Education, School of Nursing, University of California, San FranciscoNursing Leadership: A Concise Encyclopedia is an important reference for all leaders, both current and future, in health care. Its 180 entries, written by nursing luminaries, not only enhance our understanding of leadership--what it is and how it functions--but will help to promote effective leadership among nurses. The encyclopedia is organized around nine themes, with five themes embracing the most salient management and leadership theories, including characteristics and skills required of leaders in today's complex health care system:Characteristics of LeadersManagement and Executive SkillsTheories and Models of Management and LeadershipMajor Leaders in NursingProfessional StandardsHealth Care Delivery Standards and Health PolicyLeadership in Practice, Education, and ResearchQuality OutcomesInformatics and TechnologyThe entries for each theme are varied and based on the assumption that while nurse clinicians, academics, and researchers share many of the same challenges, they must also adapt their leadership styles and visions to the unique challenges demanded by different roles and institutional missions. The book also includes rich materials on organizations and historical figures that have shaped the leadership role.
