This is the first text to address not only the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role but also the Advance Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) role within the wider scope of nursing leadership. Written for CNL and APRN programs in the US and beyond. By virtue of its expansive coverage of nursing leadership beyond the CNL role—case managers, clinical educators, quality improvement specialists, and many other arenas—the text will also be a valuable addition to other graduate nursing leadership programs.
The text examines APRN/CNL leadership trends, types of leadership, health care advocacy, role implementation and integration, lateral integration of care services, and ethical nurse leadership. It broadly addresses patient assessment and clinical outcomes management, while covering the many facets of the care environment, from organizational structure to risk management to health care informatics and technology. Chapter objectives, clinical examples, exemplars, and other resources facilitate information retention.
