In The Press

'I am delighted to endorse this book, as it is almost a one-stop point of academic education with clinical competencies that I have not seen before. It is contemporary yet main stream and will be a perfect aide memoire for not only student Assistant Practitioners, Nursing Associates and Higher Level Apprenticeship but for first year student nurses too.'
