The Clinical Placement: An Essential Guide for Nursing Students 2/e is a unique text designed to assist nursing students, and their facilitators, as they navigate their way through the clinical placement learning experience. Written in an interactive and engaging style, the authors explore complex dilemmas and concerns, and suggest how potential problems can be prevented or resolved. The aim is for students to achieve quality clinical placement which is crucial to the development of competent and confident practitioners. The new edition builds on the strengths of the text with an increased focus on New Zealand health to provide a balanced ANZ approach. This text incorporates recent changes to Clinical practice with regard to risk management, improved communication and hand over techniques. There is a new focus on Indigenous health, including a discussion on cultural issues for indigenous populations and a general discussion on how to handle cultural sensitivities whilst working on the ward. Revised in accordance with the ANMC updated National Competency standards for national registration, The Clinical Placement: An Essential Guide for Nursing Students 2/e offers a practical support mechanism for nursing students as well as Registered Nurses re-entering clinical environments.
