This popular title from the Fundamental Aspects of Nursing series has been revised and updated to reflect the latest advances in the field.
This title will be an invaluable introduction for all student nurses to help them develop an understanding of the myriad of dilemmas in professional practice and ensure they meet professional standards.
This book presents the basic principles and will outline the implications and application of the relevant recent legislation that relates to nursing practice.
Professionally, this book will look at the demands and requirements of nursing, as it moves to an all graduate profession, and the subsequent legal and ethical implications. It will also be helpful for qualified nurses as a refresher text and for those undertaking Overseas Nurses’Programmes.
With the new Nursing and Midwifery Council’s proposals, there is a greater emphasis on nurses’ awareness and ability to use, and be assessed in, LEP issues in their clinical practice.
