Welcome to the home of the comprehensive companion Web site for Professional Nursing Concepts: Competencies for Quality Leadership – an exciting new text aimed at preparing students for a dynamic career in nursing. This is the first "professional development" textbook to incorporate the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) five core competencies.
This companion site has exciting interactive features for students (see descriptions below) and a full suite of instructor's materials. For the first time, we've added the functionality to allow students to email their responses to various case studies and critical thinking exercises directly to their instructor! It's a great way to facilitate online communication outside of the classroom!
