Successful Practice Learning for Nursing Students

Successful Practice Learning for Nursing Students

Second Edition

June 2011 | 144 pages | Learning Matters
Pre-registration student nurses spend 50% of their training in practice which provides a wealth of opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills. However, many new students find themselves in a clinical environment which is foreign and confusing. The new edition of this popular book (formerly Learning to Learn in Nursing Practice) helps nursing students prepare for their practice learning experiences, and get the most out of them in order to achieve the required standards. This book is, first and foremost, a practical guide for students on developing learning skills during their practice experiences.
What Is Practice Learning?
How Do I Learn?
Preparing for Practice
Working with My Mentor
Planning My Practice Experience
Independent Learning in Practice
Using Feedback to Learn
Succeeding in Practice

Really useful, easy to read and informative resource which will be useful for students who are preparing to go out into practice placement areas.
