Juta's Manual of Nursing Vol. 1 has a strong community-based focus. It introduces the nurse to the fundamentals of nursing and is extremely practical, encouraging problem solving both in the clinic and in the community. Each chapter has tutorial-type questions to stimulate discussion and personal research.

Introduces students to the cross-curricular special subjects and health care priorities that are covered as a prelude to specialisation courses.  The topics have been carefully selected to be in line with developments in the nursing qualification and, more broadly, in health care.
