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.
