Pre-registration nursing students are required to spend 50% of their course time on placement. This new practical guide is designed to support them through what will be one of the most rewarding but challenging parts of their course.

Mapped closely to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards, each chapter is packed full of helpful features, including:

  • Reflective activities to help develop professional skills
  • Real-life stories and advice from current students so readers can apply what they have learnt to their everyday practice
  • Concise chapter summaries to help consolidate learning and track progress.

Written in a friendly and accessible style by two authors with a wealth of teaching and nursing experience, this is an essential guide for pre-registration nurses to help them get the absolute most out of their time in a clinical setting.


Jessica Mills and Darren Brand are both registered nurses, Senior Lecturers in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Brighton, UK and Fellows of the Higher Education Academy.  Both teach primarily on the pre-registration nursing programme and have a research interest in supporting practice learning.
