Nursing administration, for all its diversity and dimensions, is the work of any RN engaged in leadership and oversight of services or staff across all practice settings. This expanded concept of the nurse administrator beyond nurse executive or nurse manager is central to this new edition. From such expanded recognition of who nurse administrators are, where they practice, and how they influence healthcare environments and organizations, comes a full update of the essential guide to the specialty.
