Additional Book Details

"Students will find Rita Debnath′s Professional Skills in Nursing a great introduction to the challenges of developing their clinical skills."


- Mike Parkinson, Edinburgh Napier University



What do I need to learn in order to progress through my course? How do I achieve the best possible patient-care?



Professional Skills for Nurses answers both of these questions and supports the development of key nursing skills underpinned by theory. Designed specifically to meet the needs of nursing students in the initial stages of training, the book focuses on the essential knowledge and skills needed for effective patient-care while at the same time helping students to achieve the NMC outcomes required for entry into branch programmes.



Each chapter focuses on a key aspect of nursing care backed up with


- practical tips,


- examples drawn from all branches of nursing, and


- a range of study activities to help you reflect on your learning and get the most from practice placements.



Key themes in healthcare such as ethics, evidence-based practice and health promotion are discussed throughout the book, highlighting how these relate to everyday nursing practice.



Focusing on the core skills covered in the initial stages of training, Professional Skills in Nursing is the ideal introduction for students during the Common Foundation Programme.
