Pocket Guides 

These unique pocket guides provide a wealth of practical detail, tips and advice to help the student nurse get to grips with, and make the most of, their placement.  

The pocket-sized format means the books are extremely portable (they really do fit in a pocket!) and the ring binding allows them to be opened flat (useful when adding notes, for example).

Many institutions are now buying copies in bulk to give to their students before they start their placements - it's a very cost-effective way of making sure your students are up to speed with the requirements of their placements.
