Good book for mentor preparation
on 22 March 2010
This book is written around the 8 domains form the NMC 'Supporting Learning' framework and is therefore especially useful for those on a mentor preparation course or who have a role in supporting learners as a registrant, maybe as an associate mentor. Each chapter takes you through the issues and challenges of mentoring and give case studies and exercises to consider. This enables the reader to apply this knowledge to your own practice and could be used as a framework for reflection.
For practice teachers and clinical educators the content may not cover your needs as it is focused around the Pre-Registration nursing course, but some content may be transferable to other courses and to supporting learner colleagues in practice. HPC and ACE standards and outcomes are included.
Overall a good book for novice mentors using the authors experience to offer case studies and reflective exercises to challenge the reader throughout.
