Newly qualified nurses can find their first year of practice a daunting experience. This book is specifically written to support new nurses through the demands of their preceptorship year. Each chapter provides friendly and practical support on the main areas of development needed for new nurses to become confident practitioners. The book is also designed for use on formal preceptorship programmes and covers each of the areas for professional development outlined in the Department of Health's new Preceptorship Framework (2010). Packed with activities, case studies and down-to-earth advice, this book provides essential support for the newly registered nurse.
