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 organic management to a defined nurse manager 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, 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. From tips on building the right team to budgeting basics, time-management tools, and advice on taking care of yourself (and your team), author Tina Marrelli supplies the resources nurse managers need to excel in day-to-day operations.
Doody 5 Star Review
“I greatly enjoyed this book. The author discusses the topics in a clear and concise manner. The information is pertinent and timely. I loved the section on "when bad things happen to good managers." This is such an important issue and it is hardly ever addressed. In addition, the discussion of taking time to de-stress is definitely necessary and another topic that is rarely considered. I applaud the author on the readability and thoroughness of this book.”
