Description

The guidelines and skills required to become a nurse are always changing and it can be difficult to stay up-to-date with the current standards. This book has been specifically designed to address the main skills you need to meet NMC requirements. Becoming a Nurse will demystify what you need to know while preparing you to meet NMC standards and become a confident, practicing professional.

This book is ideal for both pre-registration and practicing nurses. It is an excellent resource to prepare you for your programme or to refresh your knowledge of current NMC standards.

User-friendly language describes the key NMC standards to Become a Nurse:

· Personal and professional development

· Professional and ethical practice

· Care delivery

· Care management

· 17 overarching standards of the NMC.

"More readable than texts on single topics such as ethics or management, it is also a better preparation for the accountability of Registration than clinically oriented books usually are. … Would you recommend it? Resoundingly, yes."
- Sue McBean, University of Ulster, THES, Feb 2010
