Children's nurses require excellent clinical skills to provide high quality care to children and young people across a range of different ages. After the first year of their training, children's nursing students must master skills of increasing complexity whilst developing clinical judgement and confidence. Therefore, it is vital that links are made to children's biology and development, family needs, legal issues and problem solving but until now, it has been hard to find all this in one place. Clinical Skills in Children's Nursing is designed for children's and general nursing students in second year onwards to facilitate the transition from closely supervised beginners, to qualified professionals. By clearly explaining essential principles, evidence and special considerations, this text helps students to build up their confidence, not just in performing skills, but also in decision-making in readiness for registration and beyond. Step-by-step guides to performing core and advanced procedures are presented in tables for easy comprehension and revision, illustrated by photographs and drawings. Each skill draws on the available evidence base, which is updated regularly on the accompanying Online Resource Centre. Uniquely, this text develops students' critical thinking skills and ability to deliver child centred care by providing clear links to anatomical, physiological and child development milestones as well as regular nursing alerts which help prevent readers from making common mistakes. Clearly reflecting the Nursing and Midwifery Council's Essential Skills Clusters for registration and beyond, Clinical Skills in Children's Nursing is designed to support student nurses develop into competent practitioners. Supported by a dedicated Online Resource Centre with up-to-date evidence, realistic scenarios, and a wealth of other tools. On the Online Resource Centre: For registered lecturers and mentors: - Figures from the book, ready to download and use in teaching material For students: - Evidence, guidelines and protocols, reviewed and updated every 6 months - Video demonstration of key skills - Over 40 interactive scenarios - Active web links provide a gateway to the articles cited in the book - Flashcard glossary to help learn key terms

10/10 I am very likely to recommend this book to child branch students * Rachel Sales, Lecturer, University of the West of England *
I would recommend this text: the rationale is clear with a good step by step guide to the skills, clearly written, laid out and explained. * Patricia Joy Doyle, Senior Lecturer Children's Nursing, De Montfort University Leicester *
10/10 This looks like a very exciting book * Carol Chamley, Senior Lecturer and Course Director Children and Young People's Nursing, Coventry University *
I would recommend this as an excellent book to child branch students * Gill Langmack, Lecturer, Child branch, University of Nottingham *
The advantage of this book would be a review of the anatomy and physiology prior to each skill and the online self assessment resources. * Heather M Dale Senior Lecturer - Children's Nursing, University of Wolverhampton *
I think this text will be an excellent way for students to develop their skills * Alison Flynn, Nurse, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool *
I think the anatomy and physiology section is excellent and written in a clear and concise way... I would definitely recommend this text book * Paula Norman, Continuing Care Nurse, Southwark PCT *
I am extremely impressed with this book and wish that it had been available when I started my training... it is the best I have seen... all topics are covered... well written, to the point and very relevant. * Carys Fitzpatrick, Student Nurse, Edge Hill University *
Compares well to other textbooks... it brings together topics which in the past I may have had to access more than one textbook to get. * Tracy Henderson, Student nurse Napier University *
a very good clinical skills text... each skill is very clearly explained and I liked how every time family centred care is bought into the procedure, because this is a very important aspect of caring for a child... prior knowledge is very good... everything is up to date. * Laura King, Student Nurse, London South Bank University *
This book has more detail than most, with skills set out in a clear and concise format. Easy to understand terminology should help students carry out the skills out with confidence * Laura Mason, Student, Leeds University *
