The Queen’s Nursing Institute
Transition to Care Home Nursing is an information resource for nurses working in a care home setting. The resource, written by Queen’s Nurse Sharon Aldridge-Bent, is structured into ten chapters on subjects including the fundamentals of nursing care, safe working and regulation, adults at risk, dementia care, building relationships with family, and career development. The resource is intended for registered nurses who have responsibility for nursing within the care home environment, as well as educators, students, and unregistered carers. As with its other Transition resources, the QNI recommends that Transition to Care Home Nursing is used with the support of an experienced mentor.
