    This is an excellent book on how to navigate the challenging world of a nursing student. Susan Stabler-Haas did a fantastic job of incorporating warmth and wisdom into her topics, providing tutelage that demonstrates that she is a master at her craft. I would highly recommend this book for any incoming nursing majors, as well as current students who have not had clinical rotations yet (that is, not had their first real dose of the nursing world).
