This book helps students master the key learning skills they need to become successful learners throughout their degree and beyond. It clearly explains the core skills they will need right from the start of the course, such as writing and numeracy skills and how to organise studies. It also introduces more advanced skills that students will need as the course progresses, such as research and evidence based practice. It shows how to use these important skills to succeed both at university and as a registered nurse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the student nurse 27 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the first assignments set at university was an assignment about 'how we learn' and 'what our learning styles are'. Struggling to find any literature to use as evidence, I somehow discovered this book and it covers everything I need! I have not yet read past the first couple of chapters but I feel that that this will be a key text to refer too throughout my 3 years as a student nurse. Love it! Thank you
