Having toyed with the idea of applying to do mental health nursing for some time, I felt the need to get a book that would introduce me to what I was getting myself in for. I chose this book because of the positive reviews it has and I was not disappointed! The layout is easy to follow and ideal for dipping in and out of. The various different chapters give you a fantastic insight into the work and requirements of mental health nursing. I am now definitely going to apply and am keeping everything crossed! Would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in mental health.
This book is a must for mental health nursing students. It is so useful and covers absolutely EVERYTHING! I decided to purchase this as it was always on loan at the library. It is easy to read and understand, and it really has helped me. A great purchase!
So far this book has being my bible for my course, has everything in it that I need for mental health nursing! very much recommend it for anyone starting their degree full of knowledge and referencing and even examples of scenarios! BUY IT!
This is probably the definitive work on modern psychiatric nursing, with a bias toward therapeutic engagement and person-led or recovery-led approaches. If you get only one (which would be stupid, let's be honest) get this one.
This is a brilliant book to take a mental health nursing student through their three years of study and training. A well documented book and a good read, full of very useful information to help with assignments and work placemet.
Amazing book for the price I paid. I have referred to this book continuously while studying for my mental health nursing degree. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in mental health recovery.
