Adult and General Nurses require excellent clinical skills to provide high quality care to patients. After the first year of their training, nursing students must master skills of increasing complexity while developing clinical judgment and confidence. Therefore, it is vital that links are made to underlying biology, holistic care, and problem solving but until now, it has been hard to find all this in one place. Clinical Nursing Skills: Core and Advanced is designed for adult and general nursing students in second year onwards to facilitate the transition from closely supervised beginners, to qualified professionals. By clearly explaining essential principles, evidence, and special considerations, this text helps students to build up their confidence, not just in performing skills, but also in decision making in readiness for registration and beyond. Step-by-step guides to performing core and advanced procedures are presented in tables for easy comprehension and revision, illustrated by color artwork, and selected video clips. Each skill draws on the available evidence base, which is updated regularly on the free accompanying Online Resource Center. Relevant to both hospital and primary care settings, quick reminders help prevent readers from making common mistakes. Uniquely, this text develops students' decision-making and problem-solving skills by providing over 250 realistic scenarios, alternative interventions to consider, and guidance on how to recognize patient deterioration. Clearly reflecting the Nursing and Midwifery Council's Essential Skills Clusters for registration and beyond, Clinical Nursing Skills is designed to support student nurses develop into competent practitioners.
