Nurses are already nurse managers. They must manage patient caseloads and care plans as well as supervise aides, technicians, and other care providers. But moving from this type of organic management to a defined nurse manager role is not a natural progression. Nurse managers must command a vast, diverse, and robust skill set, and those skills must first be defined, explained, and operationalized for success. In an environment that offers new managers little support, where do they turn? The Nurse Manager’s Survival Guide (4th Ed.) provides an overview of a nurse manager’s major roles and responsibilities—all the fundamentals needed for success in one easy-to-use, consolidated, practical reference. From tips on building the right team to budgeting basics, time-management tools, and advice on taking care of one’s self (and their team), author Tina Marrelli supplies the resources nurse managers need to excel in day-to-day operations.

Well, there you go. It makes the several hundred hours spent writing this third edition seem a fantastic investment. The life of an author, it’s not all flashbulbs and glamour, you know. So what’s changed for edition number three? The major changes include a rewrite to incorporate non-invasive imaging as the predominant method of diagnostic investigation. It’s truly remarkable to think that in the first edition in 2000 non-invasive imaging barely featured and we now rarely start an intervention without a previous CT or MR angiogram. We have also expanded the focus on Interventional Oncology and are extremely grateful to Tarun Sabharwal for agreeing to contribute the chapter on tumour ablation. We certainly learnt a lot about tumour ablation and extend our thanks to Tarun for dealing with our ‘shock and awe’ editing style with diplomacy and tact. As the book, and we, get older it’s been harder and harder to stop the mid-life bulge appearing. We’ve done our best to keep the weight down and maintain an easy-to-read style that many, well at least several, readers have kindly complimented us on. We do hope you enjoy this new edition and hope you agree it’s even better than “not bad.” *Trainee
