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. Organised around the NMC mentoring domains and the Knowledge and Skills Framework, the second edition of this book offers clear practical advice on how to acquire and develop mentorship skills to support degree-level nursing students. It has been 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. A companion website has been developed for the book containing extra activities and case studies, links to relevant documents and an annotated guide to interesting web resources on mentoring.

This is a well thought through guide for a nurse mentor as a novice or requiring a refresher. The authors have researched this subject well and make no assumptions on the reader by starting at the beginning and defining what a mentor is and what constitutes a good learning environment. This book allows the reader to either use the whole book as a guide or to be able to select a specific subject or chapter to focus on. is so easy to follow and is well set out and makes good and accurate reference to the nursing and midwifery council (NMC).Such a valuable guideis a must for both the novice and experienced mentor.
