Clinical Psychomotor Skills: Assessment Tools for Nurses offers a unique blend of solid theoretical knowledge, linking it to clinical practice.

The combined theory and workbook text covers the key clinical skills and knowledge that nursing students need, facilitating their mastery of provable competencies that fulfil the required standards. This edition uses the 5-point (Bondy) Assessment Scales, with an alternative 3-point assessment available in the instructor resources.

The latest evidence-based material from nursing and associated literature – and reflecting The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s Registered Nurse Standards for Practice – make this the essential guide for students of registered nursing programs. Resources include the highly regarded clinical skills videos, and revision quizzes.
