The Nurse Mentor's Companion



December 2014 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This is a new highly practical guide to doing mentoring in practice. It explains how to support student nurses from the day that they arrive on placement in six straightforward, concise and clear chapters.

The book is packed full of resources and learning features, including:

  •         Action plans for managing your student
  •         Checklists of resources you will need
  •         Tips for best practice
  •         Case studies covering all fields of nursing
  •         Reflective questions which challenge you to question your assumptions.

Chapters are tied closely to the NMC standards, and cover essential topics including assessment, the role of the sign-off mentor and team-working.

The Nurse Mentor’s Companion is valuable reading for all nurses taking mentoring courses across the UK, and as they go on to mentor in practice.

This useful and contemporary book will support mentors in their day-to-day work.

 


Anneyce Knight, Senior Lecturer, Southampton Solent University

‘ The book is an easy reference book and suitable for pre-registered nurse mentors  or those becoming a mentor. It is simple to follow and covers the basics of good mentoring skills. The activities and case studies provoke thoughts and reflections. The book lacks in depth detail and explanations and so may be less useful to more experienced mentors ‘.

...This will be a useful tool for all nurses aiming to be mentors to student nurses. It is a comprehensive toolkit and contains an enormous amount of useful information and ideas for people looking to develop that role. It is a book I will be using within my role and one I will encourage other mentors in Forest Care to also use.
