DESCRIPTION

The second edition of the successful and definitive nursing textbook, Nursing Practice is designed to support the student throughout the entire nursing degree. Structured around the latest Nursing and Midwifery Council Code of Conduct, it explores a range of clinical and professional issues that the student will need to know, in one complete and accessible volume. Thoroughly updated and with full-colour, high quality illustrations throughout, this new edition features an additional chapter on the principles of supporting families and carers in practice, advice on revalidation, as well as a number of learning features and activities to help consolidate learning. Nursing Practice provides invaluable information to enable not just student nurses, but also those who are qualified and members of the extended nursing family, to develop a deeper understanding of their patients needs and to ensure that they are practicing safely and effectively.
