Project Management for the Advanced Practice Nurse (Paperback) (Carolyn Sipes)
about this item
While many books exist on project management in healthcare, most are written from the perspective of upper hospital leadership. This is first resource to encompass the specific knowledge base and skills required for graduate-level nurses and students to effectively perform the duties of a project manager. Based on proven project management principles, the text defines concepts specifically for APNs and DNPs, and enables them to apply processes used in the business operations side of a healthcare organization. The book describes the fundamentals of project design step-by-step, from needs assessment through project closing. It provides detailed examples of tools used by project managers, describes how to apply these tools in the management of a complex healthcare work environment, and identifies key concepts critical to project success.
