"This book is an excellent study guide for student nurses which can be used in a wide variety of settings ranging from writing essays to putting skills into practice in the clinical setting ... The exercises given at regular intervals allow the student nurse to build upon their reflective skills and help retain the information given so I recommend student nurses to give them a try. Not only can it be useful to student nurses, it is essential reading for those who have, or are about to qualify. It covers in depth a wide variety of material which is presented clearly and is very easy to follow. The additional references given at the end of each chapter are excellent."
