Leadership in Nursing Professional Development: An Organizational Focus
This text is the first leadership text designed specifically for nursing professional development. It is designed for the NPD department leader and covers general leadership principles, legal/ethical considerations and operational components of departmental management such as human resources management and fiscal responsibility.
The second edition of Adding Pizzazz addresses that healthcare practitioners are often called upon to share their expertise with colleagues. They might be asked to make presentations at patient support groups, professional rounds, workshops, meetings, webinars, and/or conferences. Often these experts have not developed strong presentation skills; consequently, many are reluctant to give presentations. The ability to plan and deliver high quality presentations is an art and a discipline with a clear goal—to enable participants to change in some way that addresses an identified gap in practice or opportunity for growth. In this monograph, healthcare professionals learn how to enhance their presentation skills.
