A Handbook for Student Nurses provides an introduction to the essential background knowledge that pre-registration nursing students need as a foundation for their training.

This third edition reflects the new NMC standards of proficiency for registered nurses and the latest update of the NMC Code. Thoroughly revised and with a completely new chapter on health promotion, the book incorporates the latest developments in nurse education and in the health service.

A Handbook for Student Nurses covers the core of first-year nursing studies:
  • Practice supervision and assessment
  • Communication
  • Legal and professional issues
  • Values, ethics and cultural awareness
  • Reflection and personal development
  • Quality care and evidence-based practice
  • Study skills
  • Public health and promoting health and wellbeing

A Handbook for Student Nurses is widely recommended in institutions across the UK and is essential reading for new students.
