Audience: "Nursing students entering the clinical aspect of their programs are the intended audience. "
Features: The book covers a wide variety of topics, ranging from making the move from classroom to clinical and prioritizing time to charting appropriately.

The nurses' comments at the end of the book may be the best part because nursing students will be able to relate to them. The only shortcoming is the lack of references.
