Leadership, Management and Team Working in Nursing

168 pages | Learning Matters
Leadership, management and team working have become central to the role of the nurse, as recognised in the latest NMC standards for education. This book assists students in meeting the NMC requirements, and helps them apply recent leadership and management theory to the nurse's role. It explores students' current perceptions and concerns, giving practical guidance for immediate challenges the new nurse will face: team working, delegation, conflict management and negotiation. It then considers staff development and motivation, mentoring, supervising and creating a learning environment. Later chapters explore more complex aspects such as management theory, recruitment, risk management and managing change.

Developing Confidence as a Manager and Leader

'As a new manager to an inpatient unit I found the chapters improving care, change management and entreprenurial skills and developing confidence as a manager and a leader of particular benefit. Adair's ten priciples of good time management is a tool that I shall use to help me in my new role. Although aimed at student nurses and qualified nurses this book would benefit all nurses and nurses new to management'
- Helen Reeves,
