Product Description


"Will give students an excellent introduction into the complexities of OSCE type assessments. The key revision section is a real aide for students and supporting material such as the common mistakes section is invaluable. The online materials will give the student some real direction on terms of learning." --John Ambrose, Lecturer, Liverpool John Moores University, UK July 2011

"Videos and photographs enable the student to gain a 'whole' picture of the process and they can see key specifics such as correct hand positioning for chest compressions. I particularly like the section on typical questions that an examiner may ask as students often forget this. Overall, a very useful learning tool for students with comprehensive revision." --Jo Rutt, Clinical Skills Lecturer, University of Nottingham, UK July 2011

Review from previous edition: "More straight-forward and concise than several I've seen ... identifies the most frequently assessed skills, and provides clear guidance on how to perform them to OSCE standard. Each skill is described step-by-step, while the common errors, and examiners question sections are particularly will be useful for any nursing student" --Rachel Gilbert, Clinical Skills Lecturer, University of the West of England

"I would recommend the book to students all 3 years and even to qualified nurses.. explains the procedures in a simple and easy to understand way, backed up with the underpinning knowledge and best practice. Online videos and material are an excellent resource." --David Thomas, Student, Swansea University
