New edition of the essential text for senior nursing students transitioning to professional nursing practice.
Now in its third edition, the popular Transitions in Nursing continues to recognise the issues and challenges faced by senior students making the transition to nursing practice.
Transitions in Nursing, 3rd Edition: Preparing for Professional Practice offers motivating discussion and insight to facilitate the shift from university to the workplace.
