TRANSITIONS IN NURSING: PREPARING FOR PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE is an important book for undergraduate nurses and recent graduates as they move from student nurse to graduate nurse. As with the 1st edition, this book has been written by a breadth of academics and clinical nurse practitioners. It deals with all the professional issues nursing students need to consider as they prepare to move from university to the workplace of the graduate nurse. Among the many topics, the book deals with issues involving transition from student to practicing nurse, the Australian health care system, organisational structure, workplace culture, professional nursing development, applying for jobs, reflective practice, clinical governance and occupational health and safety. With an ever increasing focus on professional issues in nursing, this is an outstanding and valuable book that will help educate and prepare nurses for practice. It will be of great use to senior undergraduate nurses, newly registered nurses, nurses in management and leadership positions and nurse educators in both tertiary and clinical sectors.

  • High profile contributors, including many new ones who have been selected for their expertise in specific areas.
  • Maintains the popular structure, format and style of the 1st edition with additions such as cases and OH&S content and increased and updated content on IR
