Book Description

This new edition of Smart Nursing presents a model of nursing excellence that enables nurses to use their full professional capacity to deliver safe patient care in a variety of clinical settings. The Smart Nursing 'model,' based on General Systems Theory, promotes the wholeness of the health care system. The model uses seven basic elements, called building blocks, to deliver improved results, improved patient care, and a higher level of employee 'job satisfaction'. The critical elements or building blocks include caring, respect, simplicity, flexibility, integrity, communication, and professional culture. This title features new 'Caring' Building Block (based on Jean Watson's work). It improves nurse retention and ease of nurse recruitment. It improves patient safety. It helps to build high-performance clinical teams. It offers easy-to-read strategies to improve management effectiveness.

Author Biography -

June Fabre, MBA, RNC, has worked as a clinical nurse, educator, and manager in many specialties such as medical surgical, psychiatry, home care, long-term care, ambulatory care, managed care, rehabilitation, and cardiology. She decided to turn the challenges of working as a nurse into an opportunity--to start a business focused on producing positive health care change. Ms. Fabre believes that nurses can create positive change by supplementing their comprehensive medical knowledge with communication and leadership techniques. Ms. Fabre is an author, speaker, and consultant on various topics such as critical thinking, high-performance teams, and the art of creating a staff-friendly culture. As a result, she has spoken to audiences large and small all across the country. In addition, she has published more than 30 articles in popular health care journals. Ms. Fabre received her RN and BS in education from State University College, Plattsburgh, NY; a BSN from Excelsior College, Albany; and an MBA from Plymouth State College, Plymouth, NH.
