About this book


Today's nursing students spend little time on clinical placement in hospital wards, where previous generations learned most of their skills. This has led to concerns that newly qualified nurses are no longer being equipped with the necessary expertise to fulfil their professional role.

A number of different institutions in the UK have responded to this challenge. Bringing together some of their experiences, this book focuses on the central issues concerned with planning, implementing and evaluating clinical skills teaching and learning.
