Given the impending nursing shortage, teaching students how to transition from the classroom to practice is crucial to the future of health care. The just published Professional Nursing Concepts: Competencies for Quality Leadership, Fourth Edition by Anita Finkelman focuses on how nursing leadership can improve patient care across the healthcare delivery system.
The text also outlines the five core competencies for health professionals as set forth by the National Academy of Medicine (NAM): patient-centered care, interprofessional teamwork, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics. Completely updated and revised, the new edition addresses current topics in health care, such as the opioid crisis, today’s health policy issues, and expanded nursing roles and scope of practice.
