Essentials of Nursing Adults gives a broad introduction to adult nursing, by recognising that student nurses have to engage with not only their own choice of nursing but that they have to engage with all fields of practice.
The Essentials of Nursing Adults helped me to understand the module on person centered care. It’s the best book by far that I have read in nursing. It’s brilliantly easy to read and understand.
The book is general in its approach, yet covers the essentials of care for any student nurse. The book is multicultural and diverse in the examples it provides, which mirrors the population. I would say that this book should be on the essential reading list for all pre-registration students. The book is current in its approach to using web links, and additional resources, plus the exercises are helpful, and I believe that academics could use this to support their teaching and self-directed study sections. Layout is really nice and appealing. The book also covers things such as lifelong learning which is extremely important for students to understand when they embark on their nursing education. This book would avoid the need for students to buy several books as they would have all in one place. An excellent book- well done to the authors!
