An excellent book to support study skills and CPD in nursing. relevant and easy to read. An ideal companion.
Excellent resource for students to refer to following clinical skills sessions
I have used this book for my first year students. It is clear and easy to read and the students can relate to it.
This text presented a number of essential core subject areas for student and registered nurses' use. Its easy to access format made it enjoyable to read.
The practical tips and examples can help students in developing their clinical skills.
This book disappoints in some areas and whilst it is well laid out and covers important clinical aspects of care for the foundation student niurse there are some inaccuracies eg. Administration of Injections Learning Activity 11.2 informs the reader on page 200 to inform the child that the injection "won't hurt". With a background in OperatingTheatre Nursing I can confidently state that telling a child an injection will not hurt can seriously compromise the child's trust in the Nurse.
Good range of topics covered in easy read style. Ideal for first years, as indicated in title, but felt a little basic to stand students in good stead through all their training.
An excellent student resource, gives comprehensive essential information in a very readable and understandable way.
This book has been set out well and would be easy for students to follow. I have put it onto my reading list
A good basic text for students undertaking studies leading to initial registration or return to practice. The study guide is very useful for those commencing academic studies. The inclusion of examples of care plans is an excellent resource for novice nurses.
A good addition to the textbooks already available. Readable and structured - ideal for first years but will be a uiseful resource for all nurses.
The book is very user friendly and easy reading. There are activities which enables the reader to assess their understanding.
A handy reference text.
Thought this might also be suitable for our physiotherapy students as some professional skills are common to both. However there was just not enough information that was appropriate.
This book is easy to follow i espescially like the inclusion of learning outcomes and learning activities included in each chapter
A must-read for every student on the pre-registration course! Highly recommended!
This book offers students a good knowledge of essential clinical skills in nursing. A very clearly set out book.
A useful addition to the literature for foundation year studies.
