Children's nursing placements can be daunting - you'll be working in a variety of settings and caring for a range of children and their families when they are at their most vulnerable. You will have new colleagues to work with, and newly learned nursing theory to put into practice. This pocket guide is designed to make your placements much more enjoyable and less stressful.

From absence policy to paediatric early warning scores, via faeces, it's full of practical detail, hints and tips.

* Written by experienced lecturers with top tips provided by current nursing students - this guidance is really produced with you in mind.

* Pocket-sized format - carry it with you at all times.

* Space to make your own notes - be it uniform policy, new terminology, or just the names of your new colleagues!

Reduce your stress and make the most of your placement by having this book to hand from the start.
