The Nurse's Communication Advantage - How Business-Savvy Communication Can Advance Your Nursing Career.
by Kathleen D. Pagana

Pagana ProductsThe second book in the Nurse's Advantage series by Kathleen D. Pagana addresses the notion that communication is an essential career building block for anyone in the workforce today, including nurses. Nurses are already equipped with the ability to communicate; it is done on a daily basis among nurses, doctors and patients. However, nurses need to learn the business communication skills that will make them successful and present opportunity for advancement in their career. This is where the communication deficit among nurses usually lies. This book provides nurses with the tools to become business- savvy communicators and addresses situations such as developing powerful presentation skills, facilitating productive meetings and utilizing social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to spearhead career growth.

Presented in a unique Q&A format, this book will enable nurses to learn the business communication skills not presently taught in nursing school.
