Excellent book for aspiring nurses and nursing students The book covers many of the main aspects of nursing as well as some useful tips This is an excellent starting place for people interested in nursing I also like the fact the the book has suggested further reading and resources that readers can explore for a deeper understanding of a particular area. Very informative and help me prepare for my degree Bought this book for my daughter who is in her first year of her nursing studies, she now calls it her Nursing bible, very informative and useful tips Very happy with purchase. I love this book.I ve read it cover to cover before I start university in September.This book is written in the style of a friend giving you advice, I liked this as it doesn t feel like it s preaching.Parts of it are touching, parts of it are funny, but it all makes you think. A really nice introduction to the profession, it puts you at ease and gives you basic tips and skills to help you through, in language that is easy to understand. Only a few chapters in as I haven t yet applied to university but already I m loving this book The author comes across as friendly and down to earth, and explains things in an easy to understand manner The way she goes into detail about everything is helpful and makes all the jargon easier to understand. Excellent layout Simple to use Highly recommended.
