Transition to Registered Practice

Transition to Registered Practice
From Student to Qualified Nurse

Edited by:

November 2019 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

An essential guide for students transitioning from undergraduate to registered nurse. The book covers all topics included on a final year transition module, is suitable for all fields of nursing, and is mapped to the latest NMC standards.

In addition to the book’s coverage of key final year transition topics such as law and ethics, decision making and clinical accountability, there is also helpful guidance on how to further your career and become a successful nurse, post-registration. This includes advice on leadership and management skills, preceptorship, revalidation, and continued professional development (CPD).

To help students understand the realities of being a registered nurse, there are ‘Practice Scenarios’ in each chapter and real-life accounts from service users expressing their experience of using health services, so that students can understand the real needs of people in their care. The book also includes examples and scenarios from all fields, to show the differing practice environments and challenges that students will face.
