Book Description

23 Jan 2014 1446275000 978-1446275009 Second Edition

Supporting students poses a significant challenge for nurse mentors and other healthcare professionals in today's world of practice. Recent concerns over the fitness to practice of nursing students at the point of registration and the move to all-graduate pre-registration programmes require new approaches to practice learning and mentoring the nurse of the future.

The book offers clear practical advice on how to acquire and develop mentorship skills to support degree-level nursing students. It has been fully updated to include more detailed advice on what to do when a student is failing, how to approach assessment and provides more examples of mentoring in community placements.

This book is a comprehensive and affordable guide suitable for all nurses, midwives and health professionals undertaking a mentorship course to support nursing students.

Product Description


'This is an excellent book for people who are starting a mentorship course or are in need of a refresher. Using the Nursing and Midwifery Council requirements to define and introduce each chapter, this is a concise and practical guide. It is simple to navigate and ideal to dip into for something specific, as well as being a good overall introduction. This book covers every aspect of the mentoring role, with practical questions at the end of each chapter connecting the concepts to practice. The accompanying 'sample answers' are particularly helpful. They allow time for reflection, and ground the book in the ward environment. I also recommend this book to those who have been mentoring for some time. It will be effective in reviewing practice, especially as the case studies can sometimes seem all too real' - 5 star review -
