MEDIA REVIEWS
'A practical book that fully explains the role of the nurse. This book will give students an experience of being a nurse (as much as a book can) and help them decide if nursing is for them.' -- Ally Dunhill
...This is an easy to read textbook, in which the reader can read this from beginning to end or use as a tool. It is a book for British nurses written by lecturers from Nottingham University, both having both acute and paediatric nurse experience...This text book is written for the student nurse and moving towards registration, but this book will refresh any grade of nurse and put nursing and caring for the patient back into focus. -- Jane Brown,Patient Safety Advisor, Worcester Acute NHS Trust
