"The Clinical Placement: An Essential Guide for Nursing Students" is a unique survival tool designed to assist nursing students, and their facilitators, as they navigate their way through the clinical learning journey. Written in an interactive and engaging style, the authors utilise real-world tales and coaching tips to explore complex dilemmas and concerns, and suggest how potential problems can be prevented or resolved. Contemporary workplace concepts such as patient-centered care and advocacy, clinical governance, and codes of conduct are explored; interpersonal issues such as confidentiality, assertiveness and team work are discussed; and practical skills that address how you think, act, feel and communicate are all directed towards developing confident, competent and professional nurses. A compilation of expert insights that explore the opportunities, challenges and rewards across a diverse range of specialty areas provides a fitting and inspiring finale to this essential resource for nursing students.
