The premier resource for today's nurse administrator, Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is informed by ongoing advances in health care, professional nursing, and organizational and administrative management. It covers all aspects of a nurse administrator's practice in any setting or role and at any level of influence and authority.

Topics discussed include core role accountabilities, role qualifications (including certification and education), and ethics of this nursing specialty, as well as the issues, opportunities and trends that every nurse administrator must know. The core accountabilities alone illustrate the depth and breadth of nursing administration practice:

  • Accountability and advocacy for employees
  • Clinical care delivery and optimal patient outcomes
  • Healthy work environments
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Networking, partnering and collaborating
  • Patient and population health advocacy
  • Safety, quality and risk management
  • Strategic, financial and human resource management

The publication's 17 competency-based standards will help in evaluating practice outcomes and goals and delineating what is expected of all nurse administrators. Its scope of practice—the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice—is the context for these standards.

Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is a professional development must-have for the practicing or aspiring nurse administrator or nurse executive, or any registered nurse or nursing student.
