A fundamental resource for nursing students in a clinical environment. The first edition of this nursing reference proved extremely valuable in helping nursing students use their clinical placements as opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, attitude and understanding that underpin quality practice. The Clinical Placement, 2nd Edition is fully revised with a fresh approach. It builds upon the first edition, while incorporating a wealth of new, topical content written in easy-to-understand language. The Clinical Placement, 2nd Edition: An essential guide for nursing students introduces foundational knowledge in early chapters before addressing more complex issues.
