This pack contains 1 copy of Contemporary Pschiatric-Mental Health Nursing and 1 copy of Nursing Student's Adult Mental Health Survival Guide.

Developed for Australian nursing students, Contemporary Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing is a lived experience, contemporary, evidence-based, culturally competent, authoritative and comprehensive resource. It offers a fully integrated perspective which most importantly includes the voice of people with mental illness.

With a consumer voice was prominent in each chapter this text is designed to enhance students ability to become a therapeutic, nonjudgmental, competent and confident psychiatric/mental health nurse.

It is mapped to the NMBA Registered Nurse Standards for Practice.

The Nursing Student’s Adult Mental Health Clinical Survival Guide includes content aimed at helping students or new graduates find relevant information that assists their everyday practice in an adult setting quickly and with accuracy. This pocket-sized guide contains common Australian terminology, standard abbreviations, alcohol consumption guidelines and recovery principles, among many other essential elements of mental health nursing.

The information within the resource is not meant to be comprehensive. It is not a mental health text, but like the other books in the Survival Guide series, it provides information which serves as a quick reference for students and new graduates in clinical practice.
