We wanted to write a psychology text book that would be useful and relevant for student nurses from all backgrounds with a range of professional aspirations. In this way we wanted to be inclusive and demonstrate the importance of psychology in both the nursing role and in health care in general. We are both passionate about psychology and communicating its relevance and effectiveness in nursing practice. We hope that this comes through.
