Burton and Ormond’s second edition reestablishes their book as the ‘go to text’ for both students and lecturers exploring the essential elements of transition to nurse registration.
This second edition of the successful nursing textbook, Transition to Professional Practice is designed to support both the student nurse who is preparing for registration or the newly qualified Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registrant. Each chapter addresses a pertinent professional issue, to strengthen understanding and promote personal development. These include topics such as being in charge, and accountability and the law.
This is the book I wished I’d had as I transitioned from student nurse to Registered Nurse as I was handed the keys after being qualified 3 days and left in charge. However, that was then and this is now, thankfully. It addresses our current climate and culture and considers how newly registered nurses will equip themselves to work effectively in it, as confident , competent compassionate practitioners.
This book, Edited by Dr. Rob Burton , and Dr. Graham Ormrod, will prove an invaluable guide to all student nurses transitioning to qualified status, and embarking on their careers in nursing. It is an essential read for all those who are developing into autonomous professionals in their chosen nursing fields and careers.
'Overall, the book addresses an impressive range of topics from ethical-legal issues in healthcare, managerial functions, professional development, to safety and quality of care. It also includes up-to-date information about the fastchanging healthcare landscape and undertakes great efforts to bring an international perspective to ensure the relevancy of these topics for the readers. The topics are carefully laid out to highlight the pertinent issues faced by any new graduate nurses and the skillsets required for them to enter the healthcare workforce successfully.
An essential text for all MSc students in the final year of their programme. I have incorporated this text's content into my lectures for the final-year MSc students.
This is a good resource in prparing third year nursing students for professional practice.
