From reviews of the previous edition:
"This is an excellent resource, presented in a simple and easy to understand style and should be placed on the reading lists for all first year nursing students." Journal of Perioperative Practice, April 2017

The 2016-17 edition of A Handbook for Student Nurses has been brought completely up to date to incorporate the latest developments in the health service, such as:

  • the new NHS whistleblowing policy
  • Leading Change, Adding Value, the framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff
  • the revalidation process for qualified nurses.
References have also been comprehensively updated.
The book provides an introduction to the essential background knowledge that pre-registration nursing students need as a foundation for their training. It covers the core of first year nursing studies:
  • Legal and professional issues
  • Communication
  • Values and health care ethics
  • Reflection and personal development
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Study skills
  • Medicine, IV fluid and drug administration
Case studies and examples, activities and reflection points all aid learning, while references to legislation, key documents and reports, and website links to relevant organisations provide easy access to core information.
A Handbook for Student Nurses is widely recommended in institutions across the UK and is essential reading for new students.

What lecturers think about this book:
"I found this to be an excellent resource and I feel students new to the profession would find it extremely useful... The book is well-organised, highly readable and accessible."
"An excellent introductory text for student nurses, written in a clear and illuminative style."
"[An] excellent textbook that provides up-to-date and relevant information for pre- and post-registration nursing students."
"This is an excellent book, full of relevant information for student nurses."
