Editorial Reviews


“ I think the content and material is excellent it includes relevant material and some extra without material overload! I think the size is perfect, it’s handy and manageable not too heavy and it fits in my handbag which is always a bonus! I will definitely be making recommendations to my friends and will maybe even suggest it to some of my lecturers to see what they think (to consider it as a reading list recommendation). I look forward to the next edition!” (2nd year nursing student, University of Ulster)

“I cannot fault the content– it is straight to the point, it provides some interesting resources for a student nurse that is essential for them to know, as well as some things which may not be essential but may be interesting – such as the history of nursing, which was completely new to me and a joy to read.” (2nd year nursing student, Keele University)

 “It’s been designed for students and that’s why I like it.Its layout is fantastic, very clear and a lot of literature to back up research. Each chapter is detailed which I cannot fault.It’s student friendly, useful, easy to read.” (2nd year nursing student, Swansea University)

 “The content is superb. This book is full of very user friendly chapters with lots of valuable advice , to support students  with what they are reading which makes it a valuable resource.” (Jean Nhemachena, Head of Pre-Registration Adult Nursing, University of Huddersfield)

 “Clear, concise, well organized, systematic, comprehensive and clearly linked to the NMC standards.” (Paul Regan, Lecturer in adult nursing, University of Central Lancashire)

 “I like this book very much and find all of the chapters focused and well written and have no hesitation recommending this to student nurses.   This text is useful throughout the pre –registration programme.” (Anne Manning, Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing, City University London)

From the Back Cover

The title Registered Nurse is a protected title in law. This means it can only be used by a person who is registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), their name must appear on the professional register. In this useful book, Ian Peate guides the reader through the journey of becoming a Registered Nurse. Students will be able to use the contents of Becoming a Nurse in the 21st Century and relate it to their own approved programme of study.

The NMC’s Standards of Proficiency for Pre-registration Nursing Education are the nursing standards required to be achieved to demonstrate to the NMC proficiency. There are four domains:

  • Professional and ethical practice
  • Care delivery
  • Care management
  • Professional development

Each chapter addresses the content of each of the domains and provides the reader with think points, these are included in order to help encourage and motivate, as well as for the reader to assess their learning. The think points provide answers or suggestions and encourage the reader to delve deeper and to seek other sources, both human and material to help with their responses.

The aim of Becoming a Nurse in the 21st Century is to encourage, motivate and instil in the reader the desire, confidence and competence to become a registered nurse. This text is primarily intended for nursing students, health care assistants, those undertaking SNVQ/NVQ level of study, those returning to practice or anyone who intends to undertake a programme of study leading to registration as a nurse. The terms and principles included in this book can be transferred to a number of health care workers at various levels and in various settings, in order to develop their skills for caring.
