This is a VitalSource e-book. Becoming a Nurse is a practical guide for third year nursing and midwifery students to assist in making the transition from student to registered nurse or midwife. The book revisits the everyday issues students will have encountered whilst on clinical placement and identifies which ones, as registered nurses and midwives, they will be expected to deal with more comprehensively. Becoming a Nurse introduces students to the complexities of healthcare systems, explains the demands placed on all healthcare workers, and shows how nurses may work in multidisciplinary environments in order to achieve positive outcomes for themselves and their patients. Becoming a Nurse is also available in print format.
