Nursing is more than just a job or simply studying at university and on today's nursing courses you need more than a standard textbook to support your studies. With Prepare for Practice you'll find what you need to succeed. Get advice from those who have been there, find practical guidance for learning, assignments and exams, and find out how to maximise your placements to be truly ready for registration.

On the accompanying Online Resource Centre, you'll find a selection of sample online resources from the series and you can explore each book by clicking on the corresponding icons.

Note: new books in the series will be added here next year.

"[Hart's] book really does have the answers to all those unanswered questions that you have now as you start [your course], and will have in the future." - Jo Avery and Lisa Hawthorne, Newly Qualified Nurses

"10/10 It would be of great use to any new student to refer to over their first few weeks and days of a nursing course." - Michael Adams, Head of Professional Practice Department, Birmingham City University

"an essential text for any new nursing student" - Neil Davidson, Lecturer, Bangor

"I would certainly recommend [Holland and Rees'] textbook to my students... it is an improvement on books currently available... the material I read was clear and readable and "unravelled" the often complex activity of critical appraisal... The straightforward style is a noteworthy achievement given the sometimes abstract descriptions of research methods in many textbooks!" - Dr Andree Dignon, lecturer, Coventry University

"It goes one step further than other books in actually showing how to use the evidence in practice.... a good investment because it's still useful after qualification." - Joanna Holland, Newly Qualified nurse, England

"It is a real world textbook that aims to give students the skills that they need." - Fiona McCandless-Sugg, Lecturer, University of Nottingham
