ABOUT THE SERIES: The Understanding Nursing Associate Practice series (UNAP) is a new collection of books uniquely designed to support trainee Nursing Associates throughout their training and into a professional career.
I am thrilled to see this text written specifically for Nursing Associates. Academic skills are cited by the Nursing Associate student as one of the most daunting aspects of accessing Higher Education. This new book breaks these skills down into manageable chunks, in an easy-to-read manner, whilst relating to the NMC Standards of Proficiency. This is an invaluable read for any Nursing Associate student embarking on their educational journey.
A great read and ‘dip-in’ book that will robustly support student/trainee nursing associates throughout their academic journey whilst working and studying full-time. It will most definitely be on our essential reading list.
recommended to certain students but not adopted to the programme as a whole.
A good first book for academic writing skills
Good supporting source for apprentices. Liked the NMC mapping; including mapping of apprenticeship standards as well would have supported integration of these into the curriculum (Ofsted requirement).
