A 4 page research paper that discusses group psychology in relation to nursing management. The tasks and objectives associated with nursing and nursing management can be understood in terms of the broader context of group roles and group process as outlined by what is known concerning leadership and group psychology. When a task is delegated to a group and that group functions as a team, with each member responsible for a specific role, with each team member having the skills to execute that role, this strategy becomes "the manager's best bet, even though groups rarely function perfecting," to accomplishing specific tasks and goals (La Monica 23). As this suggests, group psychology plays an integral role in nursing management. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
