    Decision-Making in Nursing, Second EditionIn today's complex healthcare environment, strong nursing leadership is more important than ever. That's why we just published Decision-Making in Nursing: Thoughtful Approaches for Leadership, Second Edition by Sandra B. Lewenson and Marie Truglio-Londrigan. Exploring multiple decision-making approaches, it teaches nursing students and professionals how to become insightful, critical, flexible, and confident decision makers. With a reflective, multidimensional approach to decision-making, it examines the ways in which history, legal and ethical issues, spirituality, culture, family, the media, economics, technology, and health policy affect the way nurses make decisions.

    “This second edition is a major stepping stone along the way to preparing new generations for the many decisions they will have to make in the practice of tomorrow.” - From the Foreword by Angela Barron McBride, PhD, RN, FAAN, Distinguished Professor and University Dean Emerita, Indiana University School of Nursing

    With a greater emphasis on leadership, teamwork, and intra- and inter- professional relationships, this new edition provides nurses and students the opportunity to see themselves as leaders and feel comfortable making decisions as leaders.

    • Each chapter features vignettes using a nursing scenario to illustrate particular approaches in an actual practice setting
    • New to this edition is a chapter on using technology for decision-making
    • Revised to include the latest American Association of Colleges of Nursing Master's and Baccalaureate essentials, evidence to support the models used, and thoroughly updated references
