As a nursing student you learn lots of nursing theory and research but how do you translate this into practice and apply it to the skills you need? Where do you start? What steps should be carried out and in what order? What should you do afterwards?

Essential Nursing Skills answers these questions for over 130 clinical skills. Each one is explained from start to finish, using a step-by-step approach, with clear illustrations and colour photographs to enhance understanding.

Small enough to carry with you and specifically designed and written to aid learning, this book is invaluable for nurses across all fields.
