Study Skills for Nursing and Midwifery Students has been carefully structured to be used throughout a nursing career: It is key reading for new students in midwifery and all fields of nursing, as well as qualified staff who aim to enhance their professional development.
...this is the only book I have come across that gives consideration to student midwives. There are many study skills books available for nursing students, and although this book is aimed at both, it does take into account the differences between the two professions. ...this is a useful book which delves deeper than its cover would suggest.
