I'm in my first year of training and I'm currently finding this book incredibly useful. It has sections on Nursing Models, Academic Work, Tools of the Trade, what to expect on your clinical placements and loads more useful stuff. I would recommend this book to anyone entering the nursing in the UK!

 Must Buy for all 1st year Nurses!!
