Successful Mentoring in Nursing

Second Edition

February 2014 | 152 pages | Learning Matters

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.
