Choosing Nursing: From Application to Offer and Beyond

This book is a must for anyone considering a career in nursing – whether as a first career, as a mature student or a return-to-practice nurse.

Easy to read and full of useful information, including tips on making a successful application, the book caters for all areas of nursing, helping readers to make an informed decision about which route into nursing would suit them best.

The testimonials bring the book alive with nurses and students sharing case studies from their day-to-day practice. This will help any prospective student link theory to practice and gain a snapshot of what a career in nursing might look like.

The book also outlines the academic and clinical support students can expect during their study, how placements work and the role of the Nursing and Midwifery Council for nursing students.

The most interesting element of the book is that it highlights the uniqueness of each different nursing field.

This will be a useful addition to libraries and universities should add this book to reading lists for nursing

This will be a useful addition to libraries and universities should add this book to reading lists for nursing courses as the final section offers guidance on how to get your first job.

I would recommend this to all pre-registration nursing students and anyone who is considering entering the nursing profession.
