Management and Leadership in Nursing and Health Care: An Experiential Approach

  • Comment

Title: Management and Leadership in Nursing and Health Care: An Experiential Approach

Author: Elaine La Monica Rigolosi

Publisher: Springer Publishing Company

Reviewer: Hannah Marriage, student health visitor, Leicester Partnership Trust

What was it like

The book was easy to read and followed a logical pathway through management and leadership skills and qualities.  It was broken down into five parts, each with their own chapters and learning outcomes for each chapter.  There was a lot in references, as well as suggested assignments at the end of each chapter,  which allowed for further development on each topic, and at the end of each part, there were a selection of worksheets that would also provide further development of managerial skills.


What were the highlights

The ease of read, and the directed learning the book allowed was the main highlight for me. I found the exercises challenging and enabled me to develop management and leadership skills and qualities within myself.

Strengths and weaknesses

Strengths include the layout of the book and ease of read, as well as the exercises, which allowed further growth and development on specific skills. The book can be read as a whole, or could be read on individual chapter or part dependant on the reader’s requirements.

There weren’t many weaknesses in this book as it explored the general management and leadership skills and qualities. However, this book would not be appropriate for someone interested in specific leadership or management roles.

Who should read it

This book would be suitable for anyone holding a position in management or for those interested in moving into management.
