Description

Even after years of training and hard work, finding yourself on the threshold of your nursing career is often a daunting prospect. In this revised and updated second edition, Jackie Hole provides clear, practical advice on both managing the transition from student to qualified nurse - including getting the most from your final placement and making applications - and practical advice on key areas encountered in the first weeks and months after qualification. Drug safety, dealing with common clinical problems, and how and when to seek expert advice are all covered, while a newly written chapter addresses the key area of infection control. Management aspects such as delegation, objective setting, budgeting, prioritisation of care and time management are outlined clearly and engagingly, along with questions of professional development and career futures. This book will be invaluable to newly-qualified nurses, as well as to student nurses, nurse tutors, and experienced nurses wishing to gain an insight into their own practice and changes in the profession.
