Reason you chose this book

Walking back from placement I bumped into another student who said – “So you can hardly stand up and don’t know where you are you must be a first year, Go home eat something get some sleep and read the student nurses hand book by Bethann Siviter. It will be OK.” This was one of the most useful bits of advice I got as a student.


This book is informative and memorable. It covers many of the practicalities of life as a nursing student in a readable style with a smile.
