"This book provides a comprehensive account of the issues concerning students' placements. It is well structured and represents great value."
Social Policy and Social Work (SWAP)

"This attractive workbook provides a wealth of tools and ‘top tips’ for students of health and social care struggling to survive the demands of 21st century practice placements. The authors artfully distil their knowledge, experience and expertise in placement learning in order to accompany the student on their journey from novice to qualified professional."
Stephanie Hobson, Head of Practice Education, Oxford Brookes University

"The book is an interesting read which I will recommend to other student nurses with particular emphasis that it does focus upon reader engagement through the handy-tips, reflective elements, quizzes, etc all to enable us health care students to experience positive placements to enhance practice."
Carla Whittaker, Nursing Student, Chester University, UK

"I found the text to be set at a good level for new students of nursing, allied health and social care especially for the early placements in their programme of study. In an easy and engaging style the book offer a range of useful tools to helps students make the most and get the best from their placement experiences. I would be happy to recommend this to students on a range of courses."
George Bell, Northumbria University, UK

"This well written book is easy to understand and covers everything you would want to know about the practice experience from how to deal with emotional situations to having clinical assessments, from personality clashes to failing your placement. Every possible worry is addressed with positive conclusions. It places much emphasis on reflection, supervision and time management which are essential to student nurses’ future practice. The interactive approach is user friendly and helps the student develop their skills from junior to experienced practitioner."
