Abstract

The specific aim of this paper is to identify the causes underlying the growth in health care system complexity, discuss challenges nurse administrators face as a result of it and suggest strategies for better decision-making in complex system environments. This paper further discusses the merits of computational modelling and simulation which can assist nurse administrators predict the results of their decisions through a virtual complex system environment.
