Explores multiple decision-making approaches to enable nursing students and professionals to become insightful, critical, flexible, and confident decision makers in today’s complex healthcare environment. With a reflective, multidimensional approach to decision-making, it examines the ways in which history, legal and ethical issues, spirituality, culture, family, the media, economics, technology, and health policy affect the way nurses make decisions.

With a greater emphasis on leadership, teamwork, and intra- and inter- professional relationships, this new edition provides nurses and students the opportunity to see themselves as leaders and feel comfortable making decisions as leaders. Each chapter features vignettes using a nursing scenario to illustrate particular approaches in an actual practice setting. New to this edition is a chapter on using technology for decision-making. In addition, it has been revised to include the latest American Association of Colleges of Nursing Master's and Baccalaureate essentials, evidence to support the models used, and thoroughly updated references.
