'Highly recommended' - Times Higher Education

'I am sure we all remember those nervous moments when we walked onto the ward, no longer the student, but now the fully

fledged Registered Nurse. The lapels may no longer sit on the shoulder but the transition from student to staff nurse is just as daunting. In this book Sharples and Elcock provide seventeen chapters full of theoretical guidance and practical advice which will help steer newly registered nurses thorough the initial preceptorship

period. Although the content will be familiar, as it builds on pre-registration programme syllabus, each chapter aims have been mapped to the Preceptorship and Knowledge and Skills Frameworks.

This will help practitioners make links to their formal preceptorship programme.

Activities throughout the book link theory to practice by applying the theory in context of an activity which will be relevant

in clinical areas. Several case studies offer reflective narratives or present challenges which may be faced by newly qualified band 5 nurses. These provide practical advice and could be also be used

as discussion points with the nurse preceptor. The authors have provided extensive up to date references at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book. Relevant websites also provide links to

current legislative content and the NHS flyingstart site. However, these are English links and practitioners from other countries

where health is devolved should be careful to follow their own country's programme. Overall this is a useful book to add to any

newly registered nurses booklist and importantly it is offered in a number of electronic formats as well as print' -
