  • Comment

’This book covers employability, planning, job applications, portfolios, the recruitment process, interviews and jobs in the future.’

Title: Launching Your Career in Nursing and Midwifery

Author: Annabel Smoker

Publisher: Palgrave

Reviewer: Jade Day, student nurse at Anglia Ruskin

What was it like?

This book is quite dense and packed with small writing and a lot of information to take in. It contains good practical advice regarding employment but also covers a lot of analysis that can leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed. Some tables, images and examples are included which help break up the text and provide some really useful things to work from.

What were the highlights?

This book covers employability, planning, job applications, portfolios, the recruitment process, interviews and jobs in the future. It covers key aspects such as CV’s, personal statements, entrance exams and relevant policy and legal frameworks.

Strengths and Weaknesses?

It provides good information especially throughout the application and interview stage that can be used while preparing and partaking in the job seeking process.

However it is a bit too much information at times making it a bit hard to navigate for the best advice.

Who should read it?

Anyone who is about to qualify in nursing and midwifery or looking for a job as a nurse or midwife.
