About this book


The practice of nursing is intricately tied to a thorough working knowledge of human behaviour. Psychology for Nurses has identified those areas of psychology most directly pertinent to the daily work of the nurse, and presents the contemporary evidence, both from a scientific and an applied viewpoint, on the role psychology plays in the practice of nursing. In this sense it is not simply an introductory text of psychology but a work on psychology specifically directed to the needs of nurses. It combines theory with practice so nurses may better understand the behaviour of their patients and use psychology both in patient management and in the management of their own, professional lives.
