Essentials of Nursing Practice is a ground-breaking new resource which introduces nursing students to the core topics they need to master during their first year and beyond. It brings the study of nursing to life across all four fields of nursing, in all settings, focussing on what it takes to be the best nurse you can be through person-centred compassionate care. Unlike any other book it uniquely blends digital and print learning resources to engage all styles of learners and to provide lecturers with helpful resources to use in their teaching.
