DESCRIPTION

Mapped to the NMC Essential Skills Clusters, Clinical Skills Made Incredibly Easy! presents, clearly and concisely, the essential clinical skills for safe and professional nursing practice. The book begins with fundamental skills covering the patient's hospital stay, specimen collection, aseptic technique and wound care, and medicines management. The text then focuses on procedures related to specific body systems. Each procedure is presented in the same easy-to-follow format. The last section details a range of other skills essential for competent practice.

Clinical Skills Made Incredibly Easy! is like having your very own Clinical Skills Tutor with you at home or in the clinical setting. It allows you to prepare for practice and/or practical assessments and to evaluate your learning using the quiz at the end of each topic.
