This book is an essential guide to mentorship in health and social care. The chapters focus specifically on the eight Nursing and Midwifery Council domains for the preparation and training of mentors, providing readers with knowledge of theory before relating these directly to practice. A rich range of real-life case studies are included in every chapter, to bring the theory to life and demonstrate the challenges and dilemmas of mentoring in practice. These are the personal experiences of student mentors and those who are mentors in wide range of settings including community nursing, school nursing, acute care, social work and biomedical science.

Learning objectives, chapter summaries and reflective questions are also included to help readers reappraise what they have learned.

Mastering Mentorship will be essential reading for both those preparing to become nurse mentors at post-registration level and those already qualified to mentor. Its interprofessional approach means that it will also be valuable reading for practice educators across health and social care.
