Clinical Skills for Student Nurses is a comprehensive learning resource for student nurses in the UK. This textbook is based on the NMC Essential Skills Clusters and covers all the key clinical skills required for effective and efficient practice in UK healthcare. The book maps the development of the student nurse in relation to clinical skill acquisition, focusing not only on the dexterity aspects, but also on the underpinning theory and the attitudinal aspects of skill delivery. Using a scenario-based approach, this book relates skills to 'real' people and situations. In addition to providing instruction on how to perform clinical skills, it will also ask the students to reflect and consider how these skills and related principles may be transferred to other situations and contexts. Above all, the authors are offering students a friendly, interactive and visual approach to skills acquisition. Written by an experienced team of clinical skills educators at the University of Central Lancashire, Clinical Skills provides students and lecturers with: * up-to-date theory and evidence-based practice, * scenarios and case studies, * activities to encourage reflection, * exercises for self-assessment and skills practice, * a glossary, references and further reading.

The World Health Organization has developed these Nurse Educator Core Competencies to enable educators to effectively contribute to the attainment of high quality education, and the production of effective, efficient and skilled nurses who are able to respond to the health needs of the populations they serve. This will enable the attainment of objectives one and two of the Global strategy on human resources for health: Workforce 2030 and is also a priority in the updated Global strategic directions on nursing and midwifery 2016-2020. The aim of this publication is to provide a clear outline of Nurse Educator Core Competencies and performance expectations, which can form the basis for developing a competence-based curriculum encompassing the cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills and behaviors expected of nurse teachers. The competencies are intended to help guide the educational preparation of nurse teachers; ensure educational quality and accountability; and, ultimately, contribute to improving the provision of nursing care and outcomes of health services. Much effort has gone into the preparation of the Nurse Educator Core Competencies. It is the aim of the World Health Organization that they will facilitate nurse educators to attain increased proficiency in assisting student nurses to acquire all the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to practice nursing effectively in the 21st century.
