what is nursing exploring theory and practice Reviews
Description: This book helps nursing students understand the concept of what nursing is all about. This explores the theory, practical and professional aspects of nursing. The book covers every aspect of nursing vital to ensuring the student nurse is supported throughout their training. There are Interviews with real nurses that give students a view into the real world of nursing.Highlights: This is an easy to read textbook, in which the reader can read this from beginning to end or use as a tool.This is a book for British nurses written by lecturers from Nottingham University, both having both acute and paediatric nurse experience.This sets the student nurse off into their training with a good grounding and from the onset, image, communication and the care given to the patient.The readers are lead through critical thinking, reflection, cases studies and the modern social networking sites and how to use safely.The book examines the importance of the early warning scores and patient assessments. I found the student tips and stories very useful and enlightening.strengths and weaknesses: Strengths are that this book is up to date and includes reference to the Robert Francis Mid Staffordshire Inquiry, highlighting that there is no excuse for poor quality patient care. There are good activities that can be carried out by the reader or in college. The book is well referenced and there is good further reading and useful websites.Although this is for the student the book takes them beyond this to preparing them as registered nurses. As a registered nurse who trained some thirty years ago I wish this book had been available as I gained a great deal now reading this.Potential Readers: This text book is written for the student nurse and moving towards registration, but this book will refresh any grade of nurse and put nursing and caring for the patient back into focus.
