Recommendations for child nursing

Recently I (Lucy Mason) was asked by a first-year nurse if I could recommend a drug calculation book for her and this made me think about what other books I would recommend to a first year starting their student nursing journey. (Please note, we are not endorsed by any publishing companies and I do not receive any payment for these recommendations). Obviously, there are other books for specific essays that you will be set, these are just a good starting point

General children’s nursing text books

1.F7FAFD79-C70D-4823-83A9-C8609919C99C The Great Ormond Street Hospital Manual of Children’s Nursing Practices
This book is a little bit like the Marsden but for children’s nursing, full of procedure and guidance.
5A88666F-F64F-4283-924D-886C541ACCF72. A Textbook of Children’s and Young Peoples Nursing
Many of us in our group think that this is practically our bible, it gives an excellent overview on so many subjects.
