Understanding Leadership for Nursing Associates

January 2024 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
Demonstrating leadership is entwined with many aspects of the nursing associate role. It is found in your workload management, prioritisation and delegation. It is found in the way you contribute to your team and supervise others. It is found in the way you deliver care and implement quality improvement. In short, understanding leadership is key to your future career. This book offers a first step into the world of leadership. Introducing the theory and principles of leadership you need to know, it shows you how to apply them to your every day role and build confidence in yourself as a leader.

An engaging book tailored toward Nursing Associates. Nursing Associates often do not see themselves as leaders – however, after engaging with the book most of our students saw themselves as leaders within their teams. I believe the book will demystify the false belief that Nursing Associates are not leaders.

Excellent book. Pity the e-version is only available through a hefty subscription.
