The study of psychology is a key part of nursing training. The Psychology of Nursing Care is built around nursing themes and focuses on those areas of psychology with direct relevance to nursing practice, omitting those with little bearing. The result is an applied psychology of nursing profoundly useful to pre-registration students.
