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.

This book is comprehensive and neatly published. I am using it for students who study management in Early Years so the directly nursing related information is less useful but the principles are clearly explained and the activities relating to values ,context and leadership were highly transferable. I will also be using the chapter on team working extensively for it's general application to the work setting. This book entices you to delve into it and points the way for more extensive reading.
