Health and social care services require staff who can demonstrate leadership, management and teamwork skills. It is therefore vital that nursing students are encouraged to acquire such skills as soon as possible.

This book offers an overview of the essential concepts of leadership and management in nursing, and includes a series of case studies and activities that bring theory to life and help cement what has been learned.

Theory is also supported in each chapter through reflective questioning.

The authors encourage readers who want to become leaders to explore their own values and experiences, and to develop emotional intelligence. They also offer practical guidance for the immediate challenges faced by new nurses, including team working, delegation, conflict management and negotiation.

Each chapter draws on the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s standards and essential skills clusters for pre-registration nursing education.

Overall this book is easy to read and has a straightforward and attractive format. It deserves to be read by nursing students and newly registered staff alike.
