Understanding Psychology for Nursing Students

First Edition


December 2016 | 232 pages | Learning Matters

Do your students find psychology difficult to engage with or want a textbook that is easy to read? Would they benefit from a textbook that demonstrates how psychology applies to nursing?

Right from the start of their programme it is crucial for nursing students to understand the significance of psychology in nursing. This book helps students recognise why they need to know about psychology, how it can affect and influence their individual nursing practice as well as the role it plays in health and illness. Written in clear, easy to follow language and with each chapter linking to relevant NMC Standards and Essentials Skills Clusters it simplifies the key theory and puts the discipline of psychology into context for nursing students, with clear examples and case studies used throughout.

Transforming Nursing Practice is a series tailor made for pre-registration student nurses. Each book in the series is:

·         Affordable

·         Mapped to the NMC Standards and Essential Skills Clusters

·         Focused on applying theory to practice

·         Full of active learning features

‘The set of books is an excellent resource for students. The series is small, easily portable and valuable. I use the whole set on a regular basis.’ - Fiona Davies, Senior Nurse Lecturer, University of Derby
