This book Leadership Roles and Management Functions in Nursing is written by Bessie L. Marquis , Carol J. Huston. The philosophy of this book has evolved over the past 30 years of teaching leadership and management. We entered the academy from the community sector of the health care industry, where we held nursing management positions. In our first authorial effort, Management Decision Making for Nurses: 101 Case Studies, published in 1987, we used an experiential approach and emphasized managerial roles appropriate for first- and middle-level managers. The primary audience for this text was undergraduate nursing students.
According to Author: Leadership roles and management roles in nursing were also influenced by national developments in business and finance leading many to believe that managerial leadership failure was widespread. It became clear that if managers are to function effectively in the rapidly changing health care industry, better leadership and management skills are needed.
