The professional role of the nurse is at the very foundation of good care management and provision. Nurses are accountable to patients, the public, employers and their entire profession. It is imperative that you have a sound understanding of various ethical, legal and professional issues you will face during your career. This competency-based text covers:

  • Professional issues and accountability
  • Communication
  • The patient journey
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Care planning
  • Managing and leading in the clinical environment
  • End of life care

Outlining relevant key concepts, lifespan matters, assessment, and nursing skills, it also helps you learn by including learning outcomes, concept map summaries, activities, questions and scenarios with sample answers, and critical reflection thinking points. It is suitable for pre-registration nurses, students on the nursing associate programme and newly qualified nurses.
