A Community of Exceptional Nurses
Transitioning into Hospital Based Practice: A Guide for Nurse Practitioners & Administrators is the first text to address the mutual issues of both NPs and administrators in successfully implementing NP practice in hospitals. This book addresses the planning, implementation, and evaluation process as well as the key factors that are critical to the success of the individual NP, and incorporates practical guidance from national NP experts. The NP recruitment, orientation, mentoring, and professional development are key to the individual and collective success of both the NP and the organization's outcomes. It is the commitment to this mutual success that sets this book apart from any other texts on this subject and makes it indispensable for students, practicing NPs, and administrators alike.
