The Newly Qualified Nurse's Survival Guide by Jackie Hole

Even after years of training and hard work, finding yourself on the threshold of your nursing career is often a daunting prospect. In this revised and updated second edition, Jackie Hole provides clear, practical advice on both managing the transition from student to qualified nurse - including getting the most from your final placement and making applications - and practical advice on key areas encountered in the first weeks and months after qualification. Drug safety, dealing with common clinical problems, and how and when to seek expert advice are all covered, while a newly written chapter addresses the key area of infection control. Management aspects such as delegation, objective setting, budgeting, prioritisation of care and time management are outlined clearly and engagingly, along with questions of professional development and career futures. This book will be invaluable to newly-qualified nurses, as well as to student nurses, nurse tutors, and experienced nurses wishing to gain an insight into their own practice and changes in the profession.


'This comprehensive, user-friendly book for the transition from student nurse to staff nurse is excellent and covers many issues pertinent to this daunting time - following three years of being nurtured, supported and protected. The author cleverly takes you through ways to prepare for a new staff nurse role and gently leads you through the next year with a helpful synopsis of the new role expectations. Regardless of how long you have been qualified there are real treasures in this book. Certainly a book to recommend.'

'This book is aimed at nurses registering for the first time and serves to guide them through their initial year as a staff nurse. Reading this handbook reminded me how much nurse training has changed.'

Provides the student coming up to qualification, or recently qualified, with the sort of useful information that some of us might have benefited from when making that transition some years ago

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
