This Director of Nursing book aims to give all of the basic information a long term care Director of Nursing needs today. For the experienced Director of Nursing it provides a good reference for long term care regulations, standards, and laws.

Applicable federal regulations are quoted in each chapter, and forms are throughout the book.
