Description : "Never was a book like this more urgently needed. Its combination of authority and experience makes it especially valuable. Its wisdom is based on the knowledge and understanding of how growing frail really afflicts older people. We who have known independence and freedom need to have our lives respected. This book makes a good case for encouraging older people to enjoy as much autonomy as possible and to collaborate with their carers in keeping well. Those who nurse older people will find much sound help within these pages." Broadcaster and writer Dame Joan Bakewell "I am delighted to commend this book to you. Putting older people at the centre of their care and support is central in all good nursing care.However, this publication clearly demonstrates the changes to nursing practice that are needed to make this a reality for individual older people.At a time when the number of older people in our society is growing and, when their care is often unfavourable under the spotlight, this publication will provide an invaluable resource for nurses." Dame Christine Beasley, DBE, Chief Nursing Officer for England "Nurses have always known the importance of including the consumer’s voice into practice; however, this text takes this view to additional heights and incorporates the voice of the older person in true partnership as a book editor. This text makes an extraordinary contribution to scholarship and practice and is sure to be on most undergraduate and postgraduate nursing students “must have” list of texts."

I recommend this book to nurses, care staff, all who are in the education and qualification sector and other stakeholders in elder care." Professor Dr. Barbara Klein, Fachhochschule Frankfurt am Main - University of Applied Sciences, Germany "This is exactly the book to choose when looking for a straightforward study book, and is particularly good for students and newly qualified nurses. The chapters are easy to dip into and the language is in layman’s terms. The further resources in the back of the book have some great links to specialist sites. Staff on the ward also found it useful despite their years of experience. I would strongly recommend this book."

Description : Develop your critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills with 150 realistic case studies from the four major clinical practice areas: medical-surgical, pediatric, maternity, and psychiatric/mental health nursing. Each case covers a common problem, drawn from actual clinical experiences and written by nurses who are clinical experts. All cases have been thoroughly updated and revised to reflect current clinical practices, with integrated content on pharmacology, nutrition, and diagnostic/laboratory tests to encourage you to think critically about all aspects of care. This fifth edition also features an increased emphasis on patient management, and new documentation and communication exercises. Plus new NCLEX® Examination format-questions help you prepare for success on the NCLEX® Examination and provide safe, quality patient care. Three-part organization presents cases in three parts: 1) Medical-Surgical Cases; 2) Pediatric, Maternity, and Psychiatric Cases; and 3) Other/Advanced Cases, the latter covering key topics such as multi-system disorders and emergency situations. Realistic case study approach incorporates cases drawn from actual clinical experiences to help you identify changes, anticipate possible complications, and initiate therapeutic interventions. Increasing case complexity provides you with a foundation on which to build as you advance to more difficult cases. Two new pediatric case studies strengthen your ability to recognize and effectively manage common disorders presenting in pediatric patients. New NCLEX Examination-format questions have been added throughout, including multiple choice, prioritization/ordering, chart/exhibit, and dosage calculation questions. Increased number of higher-level questions requires clinical reasoning rather than simply memorizing and recalling information. An emphasis on patient management reinforces the type of clinical decision-making needed in the clinical setting as well as reflecting the type of questions on the latest NCLEX Examination. Over 25 new illustrations and graphics such as ECG strips, lab/diagnostic test reports, anatomical diagrams, and medication labels are now interwoven throughout the book. New documentation and communication exercises ask you to document relevant patient information or to use the "SBAR" communication technique to communicate patient findings to the physician.

Description : How do you think like a staff nurse? What behaviour and level of work is needed to be awarded your degree? How will you adapt to working as a professional and working in a team? This book is for you if you’re in the final stage of a pre-registration nursing course or if you are making the transition to becoming a registered nurse. It provides you with a toolkit of advice to help you deal with challenges you’ll face and prepare you with an understanding of what the university and NMC will be looking for. Clear advice is given on the academic skills you will need, how to face the rigours of the final year, and what you need to demonstrate in your behaviour and placements. Professional issues covered include using evidence in practice, managing a caseload, and how far to fit into or question workplace culture. The features of this book include: • Guidance enriched by the latest research and expert knowledge of this transition period • Reflective learning boxes to help you identify how you can prepare • Case studies raising issues from student and registered nurses’ experience going through this transition • Short chapters enable quick learning to support you now • Knowledge that will build your confidence and enhance your ability to fit into your first job This book is recommended reading for all final year nursing students and nurses new to the profession. "Packed with practical detail and the supporting evidence, it’s obvious the authors are anchored in the reality of today’s complex healthcare environments. The journey from student to registered nurse is more like a vertical ladder than a learning curve. This book helps you climb up every rung of the way. This book doesn’t just describe the process of transition; it gives advice for both academic and practice based achievement, preparing you to think and practise as a staff nurse. It’s a resource you can either dip into as needed, or read from cover to cover. In addition there’s an evidence-based preceptorship toolkit for transition which is a useful tool for employers to devise an effective system of support. The experienced nurse would also benefit from this as a reference tool to support their students and preceptees and a reminder of the demands placed on them." Liz Allibone, Head of Clinical Education and Training, Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, and Chair of UK Clinical Nurse Educator Network "The transition from student nurse to registered nurse is daunting, to say the least. The realisation of what accountability actually means and the implications of working within the NMC Code (2015) become a reality rather than the focus of an academic essay. This book Transition to Nursing: Preparation for Practice effectively prepares third-year student nurses for the reality of becoming a Registrant. The book offers useful and practical advice on how to make the most of your final year as a student nurse and how to achieve the highest degree classification possible. The book utilises case studies to encourage self-reflection, and consider how the NMC Code (2015) applies to the daily life of a Registrant. The book acknowledges the reality of working in modern day health care and the challenges that it brings - and offers practical advice on how to develop resilience, mindfulness and self-awareness. This book is a must for all final year students." Mike Parker, Senior Lecturer in Emergency and Unscheduled Care, University of York, UK "This interesting book takes the pre-registration nursing student on a journey from the beginning of their third year through to registration and working as a newly qualified nurse. The book is divided into three distinct sections, addressing academic aspects, the final clinical placement and lastly registration as a newly qualified nurse. It is written in an easy to read style using a case study approach with each chapter addressing a specific aspect thus allowing it to be read as a whole or dipped into as the need arises. The areas covered in each section are relevant to all fields of nursing and the case studies are realistic and encompass all aspects of the transition. This will be a very useful resource for third year students embarking on what is undoubtedly a stressful year as they strive to achieve success in their nursing degree and make the transition from student nurse to newly qualified nurse." Pauline Carson, Lecturer, Children and Young People’s Nursing, Queens University Belfast, UK "Transition to Nursing: Preparation for Practice is an excellent text for all students embarking on the last stages of their journey to become a Registered Nurse. It offers great advice and guidance that will inform and help boost confidence, during the final year of the programme and beyond. The logical structure of the contents and use of case study scenarios allows the reader to develop their understanding of the important aspects of theory and practice requirements at Level 6, and the expectations and reality of life as a Newly Qualified Nurse. This is essential reading for all final year students." Claire Williams, Senior Lecturer, University of Derby, UK “Much has been written about transition to practice for newly qualified nurses, Bill and Michelle have done a fantastic job in putting this in one place and producing a valuable resource for student nurses to help them prepare for this part of their journey to registered professional. They have covered all the important elements of transition including resilience, speaking out, developing confidence and dealing with reality shock culminating in a very handy toolkit that can be used to help manage this exciting and sometimes stressful time !!” Claire Agnew, Senior Nurse – Clinical Practice Development, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, UK
