I welcome and highly recommend this book. Rich and readable, it will be greatly valued by those embarking on a career in nursing. It creatively combines student, patient, practitioner and academic narratives to provide a detailed picture of contemporary care. The book is full of useful exercises and activities that will deepen understanding and promote learning.
It has been an absolute pleasure to review the Essentials of Nursing Practice publication. Its content and design is comprehensive, evidence based, dynamic and therefore very interesting.
I was particularly delighted to read the contributions made by both students and newly qualified nurses. It brings into sharp focus the exciting, but challenging journey that novice nurses are on in the early years of their career, as they develop the professional values, attributes and practices of highly qualified, competent and confident registered nurses.
Essentials of Nursing Practice is a beautifully presented, contemporary text and a highly readable resource. It is richly embellished with activities, case studies, student and service user perspectives and fully cross-referenced with evidence, policy and further reading. The integration of the NMC Standards and ESCs provides a blueprint for students and gives the book a holistic feel. This is an excellent course companion for all student nurses.
At last, a nursing book with clinical skills included that so thoroughly integrates people with learning disabilities and learning disabilities nursing alongside the other nursing fields. The stories from students and patients bring this text to life and will ensure the reader knows why nurses do what we do not just how. A fantastic book.
I found 'Essentials of Nursing Practice' a well structured and comprehensive guide to modern nursing theory and practice. The 'Skills in Nursing Practice' section is especially useful. The information is clear, coherent and most importantly relevant to a range of care areas. This book would be a valuable purchase for a first year undergraduate student, and I imagine it would be well used and worn at the end of a nursing degree. An excellent 'essentials' textbook.
A clear and accessible text which will facilitate study through undergraduate study and on into professional practice. The learners like the format and don't find it too threatening even when they commence at level 3. It is on the reading list for learners progressing into all areas of nursing and many of them buy their own copy as they refer to it often.

A useful alternative to other similar texts
This is a well presented and very accessible book that provides excellent explanations of the 'essentials of nursing practice' covered by the pre-qualifying nursing programe.
I particularly like how the book takes a mutli-field approach, allowing the students to have a valuable insight into the other fields of nursing.
The comments and perspectives from student nurses, qualified nurses, service users, etc. provide engaging support to the text throughout.
