Caring is imperative in nursing and therefore an important element of any nursing course. This book demonstrates through narratives and real life case studies, how students can become better carers in their own practice. The text considers 'caring indicators' and how they can benefit nursing practice; these indicators include showing a willingness to enter a caring discourse, displaying authenticity, being proactive, promoting dignity and giving the patient confidence in your ability to listen and help them. The narratives throughout the text really engage the student as they draw on real world experiences, using them as a 'springboard for learning'. The book looks at the caring relationship, before moving on to more specific situations such as caring in difficult situations, knowing yourself, emotional resilience, and the future of caring. This book is useful as a core text for CFP and Year 1 of Branch study; adopting a practical and applied approach throughout, it gets to the heart of student anxieties and questions.
