This book is suitable for all levels of learning and is full of practical, easy to read advice. Its a well used book in my library and one I recommend.
Useful for ward staff to ensure students have a fulfilling clinical experience
Great resource for mentors of nursing students.
the book is easy to read and offers good practical information
Covers the NMC domains, is clear easy to read and provides examples from practice. I am assuming that the authors are considering a revision in view of revalidation and proposed changes to the SLAiP in the near future.
This is a really informative book for both mentors and those who aspire to the role.
I take this book when I am delivering mentor updates as I feel it is a good resource for all mentors.
Good use of historical information linked to current practices
Very straighforward to read and/or dip into specific chapters
Successful mentoring of nursing/Healthcare students has significant challenge for mentors. Concerns over the fitness to practise of healthcare students require new approaches for placement learning and mentoring.
This book considers the relationship between mentorship theory, policy and practice.
A well written text for the student who will become a mentor when in clinical service. This also provides a useful resource for mentors already in clinical service and for University based tutors when dealing with novel experiences with students in practice placements.
