Preparing for Nursing Practice 1e

Preparing for Nursing Practice 1e

Dr Helen Donovan

Preparing for Nursing Practice is a practical, informative and ‘to the point’ text that provides contextual information, strategies, and reflective opportunities for student nurses to develop their understanding of transitioning to professional practice as a Graduate Registered Nurse (GRN). Key professional concepts such as advocacy, principles of lifelong learning, and working collaboratively are clearly linked so students can understand how these aspects of practice are essential for their beginning practice. Context-based aspects of practice, policies and processes to ensure safe practice for both the GRN and the patient are explored. The text comprises 12 chapters in four distinct parts and includes evidence-based, relevant material for graduates’ preparation for, and transition to, practice. The parts cover practice readiness; preparation for a healthcare environment; finding one’s professional space; and leadership as an early career RN.
