About the eBook

This book walks you step-by-step through the whole research process so you can get up to speed understanding and doing your own research.

  • Covers new and updated NMC professional education standards and maps all relevant policy and law.
  • Supports your learning with reflective exercises, online activities and quizzes that enable you to be confident in your understanding and develop your thinking.
