Publisher's Description

The Student’s Guide to Becoming a Nurse is an essential guide for all student nurses who want to become competent practitioners. It explores the knowledge, skills and attitudes that all pre-registration nursing students must acquire by the end of their programme of study, enabling them to become confident, successful nurses.
Thoroughly re-written and updated to include the latest 2010 NMC standards for pre-registration nursing education, this invaluable textbook is divided into four key sections:

  • Professional values
  • Communication and interpersonal skills
  • Nursing practice and decision making
  • Leadership, management and team working

With case studies, top tips, activities and questions throughout, The Student's Guide to Becoming a Nurse is ideal for all pre-registration nurses and those about to qualify.

Editorial Reviews

“For all nursing students working towards their degree, this is a must-have additional text book. This would also aid the newly qualified nurse in their first post as lifelong learning continues."  (Nursing Times, 28 Feruary 2013)

“This book offers an honest approach to preparing students in the foundation of nursing. It is similar in content to other books geared at preparing nursing students for practice, but it sets itself apart with its focus on topics such as vulnerable patients, inequality, discrimination, exclusions, and public health.”  (Doddy’s, 7 December 2012)

“I highly recommend this book.”  (Nursing Standard, 3 October 2012)

"The content is brilliant for a student nurse of all experiences...goes into detail where needed without drowning in information which may be difficult for newly studying students." (Liam Crawford, 3rd year learning disability nursing student, Keele University)

"An excellent all-round text encompassing a broad range of theoretical topics relevant to modern nursing practice." (Samuel McCreesh, 3rd year paramedic student, University of Brighton)

"Great information and to the point!...The tables, figures and illustrations are brilliant and great additions to the book." (Melissa Thompson, 2nd year nursing student, University of Abertay, Dundee)

"An invaluable qualitative source of information for any student nurse, holding your hand through the tough and challenging areas of nursing...It’s refreshing to read a book which takes your hand and teaches you rather than talks at you." (Jon Kingaby, 2nd year nursing student, Oxford Brookes University)

"Simple and easy to understand...a good read to introduce student nurses to the profession." (Kay Morrill, 3rd year nursing student, Glasgow Caledonian University)

"A very interesting book for future nurses...well written, on interesting and relevant topics, in an effective and easy to read style." (Clare Allberry, 3rd year nursing student, University of Nottingham)
