Nurse Educators' Guide to Management
Nurse educators and managers of nursing schools function within the dynamics of a kaleidoscope of environments – in their schools, within the parameters of professional and higher education policies and legislation, and, in South Africa, in an extremely diverse society. Since they are part of the global nursing community, the realities of international standards compound their responsibilities. Nurse educators’ guide to management acknowledges these challenges and aims to empower nurse educators and managers of nursing schools by creating awareness of areas that need to be explored and embraced to function effectively.
Nurse educators’ guide to management has been thoroughly revised to ensure relevance and currency. Two new chapters have been included – one on the essential technological environment and its management in the education of nurses, and the other on the management environment and its dynamics in a nursing school today. Nurse educators’ guide to management also addresses the philosophical and sociocultural, professional and ethical, leadership and quality challenges that a nursing school has to face as well as the healthcare, regulatory and educational environments in which a nursing school in South Africa functions. The mission of a nursing school in society and its empowerment through alliances and networking are extensively explored.
This book is aimed at educators, managers of nursing schools and students preparing themselves for a career in nursing education.
The authors of the book are experienced nursing professionals with a special interest in the education of nurses and advancement of the structures, processes and outcomes of nursing education at institutional and national levels.
