This is a very informative and well written book. It covers a very broad range of issues related to nursing where the chapters are relevant and concise with the use of short sub headings. Its also advantageous by having chapters relating to the NMC standards for pre-reg nursing for teaching, but having relevant case studies/scenarios and questions throughout is a great resource for students.
Although this is a book I will recommend in my classes, it is something I think would be more suited to senior students.
A good essential read for students on pre registration programmes
A comprehensive text to encourage the practitioner to take care of their own mental health within their role. Professionalism and professionl practice outlined and support structures, well writtten and easily understandable.
I liked this book because of the links to the NMC and the new standard of nurse education. Easy to read and direct links made to the new standards.
A text that has the potential to assist students to develop a greater understanding of a specialist area across a range of branches.
I found the book to be fine for the 1st year groups starting out but with NMC changes to the course content to be not as applicable as it was for previous intakes. Still a good starting book and for supplementary reading.
good all round text with helpful insights for course candidates
This book provides a good introduction to mental health nursing.
This book is not sufficiently informative for MH students so would not be recommended for students in this field. It does contain some useful pointers for nurses in other fields working with persons experiencing mental ill health although I would like to see a discrete section on ‘Engagement’ and greater discussion of dementia care.
A good introduction for mental health and learning disabilities students
interesting book adopting the new NMC standards for pre registration nurse education aligning specific competences to chapters. the book provides an overview / summary of essential mental health topics which could be used therefore as a recommended read for certain 1st year modules
easy to read, engaging
A very useful addition to the 'Transforming nursing practice' series: informative, well written & easy to read. As with other books in the series NMC standards & Essential Skills Clusters form a backdrop for the learning outcomes. A range of case scenarios that apply across all areas of nursing support its holistic approach to 'Nursing and mental health care'.
