Geared more for the first years or 'potential' nursing students
on 6 October 2008
A pragmatic book written for Student Nurses by someone who has `been there and got the t-shirt'. By covering nursing history, current roles and bandings it already is at risk of dating. Chapters are varied; academia, confidentiality and NMC guidelines to name a few, however the lack of detail questions whether this is a `handbook'. The chapter on placements has incredibly pragmatic advice for new students and therefore feel this book would suit someone considering nursing or at best a 1st year. Undoubtedly Siviters sense of humour is discreetly in abundance and reassuring from an `unconfident student' perspective.
I do feel there are better books geared towards students already on the course, however if you want a easy reading basic insight, covering varying topics in lesser detail this may be the book for you, however if you are already studying I would say save your money, there is better out there
