Through its use of real clinical examples, this book provides an explanation of the project management process tailored for nurses. It first describes, in detail, the project management process along with its relationship to the phases of the project life cycle. Coverage includes the tools available to successfully complete each phase of the project management process and advance the project life cycle. With the aid of case studies and project examples, the book then examines how to apply these principles in the day-to-day work of the nurse, whether manager, staff nurse, educator, researcher, or informatician.
