Nursing students gain an understanding of nursing theory and knowledge from their lectures and textbooks, but when they first encounter clinical situations they need to translate this into the clinical skills required with patients. This book identifies a wide range of clinical skill and helps students by explaining each one from start to finish, step-by-step with accompanying illustrations. Easy to use and attractively designed in 2 colours throughout, this clinical manual concentrates on the preparation for each skill, the procedure, and post-procedure guidelines. With over 120 essential skills and procedures, written and produced in a clear, consistent style, this book is invaluable in any clinical setting and suitable for all foundation students regardless of their future specialty.
