This is the only resource designed to teach graduate-level nursing students the skills they need to be effective project managers. Using practical case examples and proven tips, the text presents step-by-step strategies for applying project management skills in varied settings and describes how to identify key concepts critical to project success. The second edition delivers new content to reflect the changing roles and responsibilities of today’s APRN and is consistent with project management concepts defined by the American Organization of Nurse Leaders (AONL) and the American Nurses Association (ANA). Case scenarios are included in each chapter to reinforce practical applications, along with critical thinking questions and activities.
